Area Police Reports


– Alvin J. Jusino, 29, of Jamestown was charged with second-degree assault, resisting arrest and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance at 9:39 a.m. Monday in the area of Newland and Broadhead avenues. Police report seeing Jusino walking down the sidewalk knowing he had an outstanding felony arrest warrant through the Jamestown Police Department. Officers attempted to conduct a street check on Jusino and Jusino allegedly ran from officers. A brief foot pursuit ensued and while an officer was in close proximity of Jusino, Jusino reportedly grabbed a heavy duty garbage can located behind a house and threw it back at the officer in an attempt to get away. The can hit the officer in the leg, but the officer was able to catch Jusino while other officers caught up. The officer who was hit by the garbage can was cut and had pain in his knee prompting a trip to UPMC Chautauqua for treatment. Police report finding a small amount of a white powdery substance in tin foil that later tested positive for fentanyl. Jusino was taken to the Jamestown City Jail without further incident and charged. He was kept in the jail until he could be arraigned.

The woman, later identified as Robin L. Miller, initially lied to officers about her identity to avoid arrest, as she was found to have confirmed warrants out of the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office, Lakewood-Busti Police Department, and Morris County, N.J. Miller was held in the Jamestown City Jail pending arraignment in Jamestown City Court.
