On Tuesday, July 18th, around 8:38 p.m., Officers Omery and James responded to a suspicious person with a weapon complaint. A passerby observed an approximately 50-year-old black male occupying a red BMW waving around a handgun at the intersection of Second North Street and Kirkpatrick Street. Officers responded and stopped the vehicle, and the driver, Kenneth Davis.
During a search of Davis’ vehicle, Officers discovered a clear knotted bag containing 15 grams of a beige chunky substance, a portable digital scale. two cell phones, sandwich bags, and $700 in U.S. currency. The chunky substance tested positive for the presence of crack cocaine.
Officers determined that Davis was in possession of this substance with the intent to sell. Davis was booked into the Onondaga County Justice Center and was charged with one count of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree, one count of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the third degree with Intent to Sell, and one count of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree.
We would like to thank our Officers for their diligence in responding to this incident, and the resulting seizure of illegal drugs from our City streets.
