Police: Fired trucker charged with stealing truck and marijuana possession

A fired trucker from New Hampshire was arrested by State Police on charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana after he was stopped in Jamestown.

State Police said they received a report of a truck driving east on I-86 that was being tracked – via GPS – by the company that owned the truck.

The company reported that a recently terminated employee, Craig Goodman of Rochester, N.H., 55, refused to drive the truck to Chicago, prompting the company to contact State Police.

Police were on the lookout for the vehicle, and on Sunday pulled the driver over on I-86.

Inside the truck, troopers smelled marijuana and seized 14 grams of the drug, along with two smoking devices containing marijuana residue and an e-cigarette containing marijuana oil, State Police said.

Goodman was arraigned in Ellicott Town Court and held in Chautauqua County Jail.
