GENESEO – A Wayland pair are both charged with felonies for allegedly carrying heroin and crack cocaine on 390.
According to a press release from Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty, driver Jessica Feely, 38, and passenger Todd Milliman 47, are both charged with felony Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree, two counts of misdemeanor Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree and misdemeanor Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
On March 2, 2018 at approximately 5:20 p.m. Deputy Shawn Whitford was assigned to the Operation Safe Interstate Initiative when he stopped on vehicle on Interstate 390 for a Vehicle and Traffic Law violation.
The Deputy identified the driver as Feely and alleged that the vehicle had a suspended registration. The Deputy also discovered that Feely and a passenger, Milliman, were in possession of 19 separate packages of what is believed to be heroin and as four bags of what is believed to be crack cocaine.
They also allegedly had a 14 year old passenger in the vehicle.
Feely was charged with Vehicle and Traffic Law violations in addition to the above charges.
Assisting Deputy Whitford with the arrests was Deputy John Morgan. The 14-year-old was turned over to ‘a responsible third party.’

However, when Feely was being brought into the jail facility she was found to be in possession of another bag of crack cocaine. She was additionally charged with felony Attempted Promoting Prison Contraband in the First Degree and misdemeanor Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree.
Town Justice Kathleen Houston arraigned both defendants. The District Attorney’s Office recommended bail for both be set at $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond.
Houston ordered that Feely be held at the Livingston County Jail on $2,500 cash or $5,000 bond on the original charges and $1,500 cash or $3,000 bond for the additional charges.
