Blasdell woman jailed on drug charge after Amherst traffic stop

Cynthia L. Smiegel, 32, of Blasdell, pleaded not guilty to a drug charge Wednesday morning in Amherst Town Court following an early morning traffic stop.

Smiegel was pulled over by Amherst police in the first block of Dodge Road about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday, according to an Amherst Police report. She was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance after a felony amount of an unidentified narcotic was reported found in her vehicle, the report said.

At the arraignment, Justice Kara A. Buscaglia ordered Smiegel to remain in custody in lieu of either $1,000 cash bail or a $5,000 bail bond. She is due back in court May 23.
