Pair arrested in Chautauqua County after deputies find drugs, stun gun in car

Two Chautauqua County men were arrested after deputies were dispatched to a report of "two suspicious subjects inside a vehicle parked at a Cassadaga business" at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, sheriff's officials said.

The deputies said they saw the driver, Jason R. Remington, 39, Brocton, attempt to conceal packaged narcotics. A drug-sniffing dog was brought in and it indicated that there were narcotics in the car, sheriff's officials said. Deputies searched the vehicle and found 0.5 ounces of methamphetamine, .6 grams of powder cocaine, some prescription pills, a small amount of marijuana, digital scales and packaging materials, officials said. Deputies also said Remington had an electronic stun gun on him.

Remington was charged with felony fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, felony fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, felony third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, three counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession marijuana. He was remanded without bail to Chautauqua County Jail.

The other man in the car had a small amount of marijuana and was released on an appearance ticket.
