City Man Charged After Drugs, Cash Found

A large quantity of methamphetamine, fentanyl and cash were seized Friday, the Jamestown Police Department said.

Walter S. Duprey, 36, of Jamestown, was reportedly observed around 11:39 a.m. driving a Honda Civic down West Cowden Street, near Charles Street, being chased by a citizen yelling for him to stop.

The incident took place in front of members of the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force, New York State Police K-9 Unit and patrol officers.

Duprey quickly exited the sedan after seeing officers approach. It was learned that the Jamestown man was operating the vehicle on a suspended license.

A search turned up the narcotics, scales, packaging materials and $1,700 in cash, JPD said in a news release.

Duprey was taken into custody on charges of two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, two counts of criminal possession of paraphernalia and unlawful possession of marijuana.

He was taken to Jamestown City Jail.
