3 arrested in New York on suspicion of drug crime

Three people were arrested by police in Salamanca on the evening of Aug. 30, following an investigation by several local law enforcement agencies. New York officials in Salamanca and Cattaraugus, along with the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force, conducted the operation that resulted in the arrests. A 27-year-old woman and two men, aged 31 and 23, all face drug crime charges.

Details of the operation were not included in the report, other than to confirm that a search warrant for a private residence was served at approximately 9:08 p.m. the night in question. Members of the task force say they found 16 grams of what they believe to be fentanyl, which would be valued at $1,600 on the street. They also believe they found two grams of methamphetamine, as well as scales and other paraphernalia.

The three individuals were charged with a variety of drug charges, including felony possession with intent to sell, criminal use of paraphernalia and criminal possession of a controlled substance. Two of the three individuals remain in police custody at the Cattaraugus County Jail, while the third was released with an appearance ticket. No court dates have been confirmed.

Drug busts are notoriously complex operations involving multiple branches of law enforcement. This, in turn, increases the potential for human error that could result in breaches of due process. All three individuals suspected of a drug crime will appear in a New York court with a dedicated defense attorney, who will review the facts of the case in order to build a strong defense against the charges.
