K-9 Unit Discovers Packaged Drugs During Traffic Stop

A Saturday morning traffic stop led to the confiscation of packaged drugs for sale.

According to Jamestown Police, a traffic stop near the corner of Third and Pine streets was conducted after a vehicle failed to signal. Officers, when approaching the vehicle, observed the passenger frantically moving around inside. The driver, Jzon Loverme, 36, and an 18-year-old male passenger who was not named in the report, were found to be in possession of methamphetamin. A vehicle search by the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s K-9 unit alerted police to additional methamphetamin packaged for sale, brass knuckles, a scale and other drug paraphernalia.

Both men were charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, third-degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Loverme was also charged for failing to signal and driving on a suspended registration.
