Warsaw man jailed on felony drug charges

WARSAW – A Warsaw man faces felony drug charges following a traffic stop Friday morning on South Main Street in the Village of Warsaw, the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Department reported.

Cory M. Nichols, 31, of Brooklyn Street, was pulled over for numerous traffic infractions and charged with driving while impaired by drugs.

Deputies reported finding quantities of heroin, cocaine and narcotic pills in his vehicle along with alleged drug paraphernalia and unused glassine baggies like those use in the packaging of illicit drugs.

In addition to driving while impaired, Nichols was charged with third- and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, refusing to submit to a breath test, having an uninspected motor vehicle and unsafe tires, and having unauthorized stickers on the rear window of his vehicle.

He was remanded to the county jail here in lieu of $20,000 cash bail or a $40,000 property bail bond pending further proceedings in Warsaw Village Court on Sept. 14.

His vehicle was impounded and is being held at the county impound site in Warsaw.

Sheriff Gregory J. Rudolph said Nichols had served two years in state prison on a felony drug sale conviction.
