Pill, powder stash uncovered

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — A Hornell man will stay in local lockup for the weekend after a routine traffic stop led police to an illegal drug stash in his backpack.

Jacob A. Smith, 28, 7 Holley Terrace, Hornell, was charged with one felony and five misdemeanorcounts of criminal possession of a controlled substance around 3:15 a.m. Thursday, after a city patrol officer stopped a vehicle on Genesee Street for alleged failure to signal.

The driver of that vehicle, Richard G. Dwyer, 27, 67 Ontario St., seemed nervous and fidgety while the patrol officer spoke with him, prompting the officer to request Dwyer exit the vehicle, the report said.

After Dwyer admitted to having a quantity of marijuana on his person, the officer directed Smith, a passenger, to also exit the vehicle. 

As Smith was patted down, a container fell out of his pants pocket. The container held a white powdery substance that field-tested positive for cocaine content, the report said.

Smith’s backpack contained quantities of six prescription-only medications, a stimulant compound, two baggies containing an unidentified white powdery substance, two scales, a vaporizer and a quantity of clear plastic bags that are sometimes used as drug packaging, according to the report.

Smith was carrying $360 cash, which police seized.

Smith is being held without bail until he’s arraigned Tuesday in City Court.

Dwyer was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana. He also is due in court Tuesday.
