GROVELAND – Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of a Groveland resident on drug related charges following an investigation into a motor vehicle crash.
On November 11th, 2020 at approximately 5:06pm Deputy Morganne Harrington and Deputy Brandon Moran responded to the area of the 5700 block of Barber Hill Road in the Town of Groveland for the report of a motor vehicle crash involving a single vehicle. Deputies arrived to find the operator and four passengers, all of which were out of the vehicle and not injured.
The operator of the vehicle was identified as Nicholas T. Brady, age 18 from Groveland NY. During the investigation, Brady was found to be in possession of fifteen (15) cartridges containing suspected concentrated THC in a liquid form. The suspected concentrated THC was secured as evidence and sent to a forensic lab for testing. Brady was released pending the outcome of the lab results.
On January 25th, 2021 Brady was arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 5th Degree after lab results showed the suspected concentrated cannabis tested positive for THC.
Brady was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and released on an appearance ticket to return to the Groveland Town Court at a later date, as the offense did not qualify for arraignment under the NYS Justice Reform Act.
Assisting on scene with the investigation for the Sheriff’s Office were Deputy Ross Gerace, Deputy Michael Donals of the Forensic Identification Unit (FIU) and Deputy Michael Phillips. The investigation was handled under the command leadership of Sheriff’s Investigator Shawn Whitford.
