Thursday was the original court date scheduled for the three, but it has now been pushed back to August 26 in Fayetteville Village Court.
On Friday, July 11, around 2 a.m., police saw a vehicle with an open door in the driveway of a home on East Genesee Street.
While investigating the car, officers saw a man and woman inside an apartment, at a kitchen table with a white capsule. Further investigation found the two were in possession of a substance that tested positive for cocaine.
Police arrested Page, 38, of Toronto, Canada, and Stephanie Ford, of East Genesee Street, and charged them with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the 4th degree, a felony. Ford was also charged with unlawful possession of marijuana.
Ford identified Page as a member of the band, according to police, and Page confirmed to officers that he was.
Both were arraigned in Manlius Town Court and released after posting bail; $10,000 for Page, $5,000 for Ford.
Shortly after 8 a.m. on Friday, police arrested Christine Benedicto, of the same apartment, in connection with the drugs that were found.
Benedicto, who was not home at the time of the first two arrests, was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, and unlawful possession of marijuana. She was arraigned in Manlius Town Court and released on her own recognizance.
