Police Arrest Two During Drug Investigation

Nicole Bartlow

A Buffalo teenager and Jamestown woman have been arrested following an investigation for possible drug distribution.

On Friday at 10:22 a.m., the Jamestown Police Department received a complaint for suspicious subjects in the area of Spring and East Sixth streets possibly involved in the distribution/sale of narcotics. Members of the Jamestown Police Department and Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force responded to the area.

Officers eventually made contact with two subjects, Jordan B. Dandridge, 19, of Buffalo, and Nichole L. Bartlow, 36, of Jamestown. During the investigation, both Dandridge and Bartlow allegedly provided false names in an attempt to conceal their identity and both subjects were taken into custody.

Dandridge was allegedly found to be in possession of 8.1 grams of fentanyl and 15.4 grams of crack cocaine. He was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and false personation.

Bartlow was found to be wanted out of the State of Pennsylvania and was charged with false personation and being a fugitive from justice.

Both subjects were transported to the Jamestown City Jail where they are being held pending their arraignment in Jamestown City Court.

Anyone with information about drug or criminal activity is asked to call the Jamestown Police Department Tip Line at 716-483-8477, the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 716-664-2420, or the Dunkirk Police Department Tip Line at 716-363-0313.
