Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of two Orleans County residents on felony and misdemeanor charges following a traffic stop.
On October 17th, 2022, Sergeant Caleb Cutting was assigned to the Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division when he conducted a traffic stop on Sliker Hill Road in the Town of Conesus for violations of the NYS Vehicle and Traffic law.
The roadside investigation alleges that the operator, identified as 21-year-old Tyler J. Potter of Medina, NY, was operating the vehicle on an expired license.
Contact was also made with one of Potter’s passengers, 18-year-old Marcus G. Scribner, also of Medina, NY.
Scribner is alleged to have had an illegal knife in his possession and LSD on his person.
Potter is alleged to have possessed a quantity of LSD, MDMA, Concentrated Cannabis, a digital scale, and a sum of US Currency.
Contact was also made with a third occupant, who was found to be a 16-year-old juvenile also from Medina. That individual was later turned over to the custody of their parent.
Scribner was arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree, Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Fourth Degree, and Endangering Child Welfare.
Scribner was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing. Scribner was then processed and released with an appearance ticket to appear in court later as his charges did not qualify for bail under the NYS Bail Reform.
