Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office deputies were conducting a warrant check in Mayville Thursday afternoon on Blanchard Street and spotted a vehicle driven by 38 year-old Kristen Nelson of Jamestown pulling into the driveway. The vehicle’s passenger, identified as 40 year-old Sarah Johnson, also of Jamestown, was allegedly seen placing items behind a youth sitting in the vehicle. Deputies further investigated and reportedly found a large methamphetamine pipe sticking out of a diaper bag and also a bag of marijuana and a marijuana pipe.
A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed a large sum of cash, three scales, plastic bag packaging material, multiple containers of methamphetamine and multiple hypodermic needles. Nelson, Johnson and a passenger – 33 year-old Richard Philbrick – were all charged. Child Protective Services was also contacted for the two youths found inside the vehicle.
All three were sent to the county jail to await arraignment on related charges.
