CELORON An investigation into the sales and trafficking of illegal narcotics led to the arrest of a Celoron resident Friday afternoon.

Investigators with the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force (Jamestown and Ellicott police departments) executed a search warrant at 37 Smith Ave. in Celoron, where they located a quantity of methamphetamine, prescription pills, packaging materials and drug paraphernalia. Investigators located Lindsey I. Harrison, 38, a resident of the address, and charged him with fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Harrison was also charged with possessing drug paraphernalia and tampering with physical evidence, as he attempted to flush the methamphetamine down the toilet upon entry of the home. Harrison was arraigned in Ellicott Town Court and was committed to the County Jail in Mayville.

Investigators also located and charged a 17-year-old youth with fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, as they were found to possess a quantity of narcotic medication without a prescription.
