Falconer Woman Charged After K-9 Finds Meth

ASHVILLE — A Falconer woman is facing charges after methamphetamine, prescription pills and drug paraphernalia were found during a traffic stop Thursday morning in Ashville.

Deputies stopped a vehicle around 2:30 a.m. on Route 394 for an alleged traffic violation. The driver was identified as 25-year-old Bridget G. Putman, and an investigation determined her driving privileges were revoked in New York.

During a search by K-9 Link, Putman was allegedly found to be in possession of methamphetamine, pills and drug paraphernalia, the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release Thursday.

Putman was taken into custody and charged with two counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, operating outside interlock restriction, unlicensed operator and inadequate muffler. She is scheduled to answer the charges in North Harmony Town Court at a later date.
