Three Charged With Pot Possession

Three Jamestown residents were taken into custody Thursday night on marijuana charges.

Terrance L. Austin, 63, Jordan T. Austin, 22, and Lesley H. Knight, 59, were all charged with third-degree criminal possession of marijuana after Jamestown Police received information that they were drying a large amount of marijuana and moving it from their residence at 45 W. 11th St., in the city.

Officers responded to the location and after speaking with the occupants, observed several indicators that marijuana was being used and possessed inside the residence. After receiving a warrant to search the residence with members of the New York State Police’s Community Narcotics Enforcement Team, investigators located a large quantity of marijuana.

All three subjects were taken to Jamestown City Jail pending arraignment.

Anyone who may have additional information on the illegal sales or possession of narcotics in the Jamestown area is asked to call the JPD’s anonymous tip line at 483-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
