Alleged Sardinia drug dealer jailed after traffic stop

A 26-year-old Sardinia woman remained in custody at the Erie County Holding Center Thursday evening hours after she was arrested by Erie County Sheriff Deputies for allegedly trying to make street sales of drugs in the Town of Concord.

Megan Shimburski was arrested after Deputies Benjamin Pisa and Tysen Lincoln had been sent Thursday afternoon to check on reports of a “suspicious vehicle” on south Vaughan Street in Concord, according to department spokesman Scott Zylka.

Shimburski turned out to have been a passenger in that car which was driven by Ryann Skiver, 29, of Springville, Zylka said. After the deputies pulled over the Skiver car they found the driver had a quantity of marijuana and was driving with a suspended license. Skiver was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and driving with a suspended license but Shimburski was arrested after the deputies reported finding in her possession seven different containers containing 141 narcotic pills.

She had 99 hydrocodone tablets, 20 Alprazolam tablets, 19 Oxycontin tablets, 2 Oxycodone tablets and one Suboxone strip, investigators said.

She is being held on a felony count of criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, seven counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana, Zylka said. Skiver was released and faces Concord Town Court proceedings in several weeks.
