City Man Charged For Selling Cocaine

A Jamestown man has been remanded to jail following a three-month investigation by the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force into the sale of cocaine.

Charged with third-degree criminal possession and third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance was Cody C. Mason, 22, of Palmer Street. Members of the drug task force and officers with the Jamestown Police Department took Mason into custody Friday at 3:30 p.m. on a warrant signed by Jamestown City Court Judge John LaMancuso.

Police alleged Mason, on three occasions, sold cocaine to an agent of the drug task force within the city of Jamestown. As a result of the arrest and information obtained during their investigation, the case is ongoing, police said.

Mason was arraigned Friday in front of Judge LaMancuso and remanded to Chautauqua County Jail without bail, a city court clerk said. The Jamestown resident is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Thursday at 9:30 a.m.

The Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force asks residents to contact them at 800-344-8702 if they observe narcotics-related activity in their area.
