LOWVILLE — A Lyons Falls man faces multiple drug charges and traffic violations after sheriff’s deputies found him in possession of marijuana and methamphetamine during a traffic stop.
Brett M. Wadsworth, 24, of Lyons Falls was arrested Oct. 13 following a traffic stop on North Chases Lake Road in the town of Watson. He was stopped for a traffic violation and was subsequently found to have a suspended New York state license.
During interviews with Mr. Wadsworth, deputies smelled marijuana and when asked if anything was in the vehicle, he produced a small amount of marijuana. At that time, a vehicle search was conducted upon which scales and a glass pipe both containing small amounts of a white substance were found. The substance tested positive for methamphetamine.
Mr. Wadsworth was arrested and taken to the county public safety building. He was processed and charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, second-degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia (scales), third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle while registration is suspended or revoked and operating a motor vehicle without insurance.
Mr. Wadsworth was released with appearance tickets returnable to the Town of Watson Court at a later, unspecified date.
