City Man Arrested On Gun, Drug Charges

U.S. Attorney Trini Ross on Monday announced that Steven Glover, 39, of Jamestown was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of 5 grams or more of methamphetamine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua A. Violanti, who is handling the case, stated that according to the complaint, on the morning of Dec. 14, 2022, a Jamestown police officer observed Glover in a vehicle. The officer knew that Glover was suspended from driving. The officer stopped the vehicle and made contact with Glover, who immediately advised that he had a pipe on his person.

Glover then handed over a glass pipe that contained what appeared to be methamphetamine residue inside. Glover was detained and a search of the vehicle recovered a digital scale with white crystal residue and a pistol.

Glover was charged in New York State Court and released on bail. On Feb. 22, 2023, a Jamestown police officer observed Glover in the passenger seat of another vehicle and was aware of his outstanding charges. The officer stopped the vehicle and observed drug paraphernalia a plastic bag containing suspected methamphetamine.

Glover was again taken into custody.

In 2019, he was convicted of a felony in Chautauqua County Court and is legally prohibited from possessing a firearm.

The charges carry a mandatory minimum penalty of five years in prison and a maximum penalty of 40 years.

The effort is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) operation. OCDETF identifies, disrupts, and dismantles the highest-level criminal organizations that threaten the United States using a prosecutor-led, intelligence-driven, multi-agency approach.
