Three Chautauqua County residents were arrested on various drug charges following a traffic stop Wednesday by New York State Police.
Troopers from the State Police Barracks in Jamestown arrested Brandi Howard, 38, of Sinclariville; Todd Witt, 40, of Stockton; and Gary Warren, 26, of Jamestown. They each were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal use of drug paraphernalia, criminally possession of a hypodermic instrument and unlawful possession of marijuana, according to New York State Police.
Troopers said Witt was at the wheel of the vehicle when the three were pulled over on Gerry-Ellington Road in Gerry for a traffic violation. During the traffic stop, the Troopers said they observed syringes, a tray containing methamphetamine and marijuana inside the vehicle in plain view. Chautauqua County Sheriff Deputies arrived on scene to assist with the investigation, at which time they discovered Witt’s license was suspended, that Howard was wanted by the Jamestown Police Department and that there was an active warrant for Warren for a probation violation.
All three were arraigned in Town of Charlotte Court and held in the Chautauqua County Jail. They are scheduled to reappear next month in the Town of Gerry Court to answer the charges.
