Police: Woman trespassing at library booked on a volume of charges

A woman who was trespassing at a downtown Jamestown library was arrested early Monday morning on several charges, according to the Jamestown Police Department.

Crystal L. Depew, 27, of Jamestown, was arrested just after midnight after an incident at the James Prendergast Library, 509 Cherry St.

Police said that officers patrolling near the library saw multiple people trespassing, and while speaking with them, Depew gave officers a false name. She began quickly walking away, then ran from officers, before she was tracked down "a short distance away," police said. Depew was taken to Jamestown City Jail, where she was found to be in possession of cocaine, fentanyl and a digital scale, police said.

Depew was arrested on charges of second-degree criminal impersonation, second-degree obstruction of governmental administration, resisting arrest, two counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia.
