Wolfe Island crash leaves man dead


PHILADELPHIA — An estimated $75,000 worth of methamphetamine and cocaine was seized from a vehicle this week.

Dwight Williford, 37, of Pennsylvania, was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony.

At about 11 a.m. Wednesday, members of the Metro-Jefferson Drug Task Force assisted road patrol deputies with a drug investigation in the town of Philadelphia. The investigation led to a search warrant being obtained for a 2020 Kia sedan and the sole occupant, Mr. Williford.

Police said 17 ounces of methamphetamine and 9 ounces of cocaine were seized during the search. The drugs had an estimated street value of $75,000, according to the task force.

Mr. Williford was arraigned in Carthage Village Court and released. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and Watertown police assisted in the ongoing investigation.
