Brocton Man Found With Drugs, Stun Gun

CASSADAGA — A Brocton man was jailed late Wednesday after he was reportedly found in possession of several drugs and a stun gun.

Chautauqua County Sheriff’s deputies charged 39-year-old Jason R. Remington after being alerted to two suspicious men inside a car parked at a business in Cassadaga around 11:30 p.m. Deputies spoke to Remington, the driver of the car, as well as a passenger, 26-year-old Nicholas Botticello of Fredonia.

Deputies reported Remington attempted to conceal packaged drugs, at which time K-9 Link performed a search of the car, the Sheriff’s Office said in a press release Thursday. A search turned up a half-ounce of methamphetamine, powder cocaine, various prescription pills, marijuana, a digital scale and packaging materials.

Remington was also found in possession of a stun gun; a previous criminal conviction made the possession a felony, deputies reported.

The Brocton man was charged with fourth- and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, three counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, second-degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of marijuana. He was arraigned in Stockton Town Court and remanded to Chautauqua County Jail.

Botticello was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana. He was cited and released, the Sheriff’s Office said.
