City Man Sentenced For Arrest At Blue Heron

MAYVILLE-A Jamestown man who allegedly showed up to this year’s Great Blue Heron Music Festival with drugs and a knife learned of his fate Monday in Chautauqua County Court.

Rashid A. Jabbar, 29, was sentenced to 90 days in jail, with five years probation and a six-month driver’s license revocation for fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

According to the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office, security at the music festival-which took place July 5-7 on Waits Corners Road- was informed of Jabbar selling drugs.

After security confronted him, they determined Jabbar was in possession of a large fixed blade knife unsheathed in his pocket.

Jabbar subsequently threw seven bags of heroin on the ground as he was being transported to security headquarters, police said.

Other recent sentences included Daniel E. Mniszewski, 44, of Silver Creek, sentenced to 1 to 5 years in state prison for third-degree robbery. Mniszewski was charged in August for his alleged involvement in a robbery at the Kwik Fill station on Routes 5 and 20 in Hanover.

Jeremy M. Ramsey, 35, of Frewsburg was sentenced to 5 years in state prison, with 5 years post-release supervision, for second-degree attempted arson.

Carlos J. Rosado, 26, of Dunkirk was sentenced to 2 1/2 to 5 years in state prison for third-degree burglary.
