GENESEO – A Conesus man was arrested on several charges, including B felony drug possession, after a traffic stop by a Geneseo Police officer for possible DWI, on Mount Morris Road on Saturday.
According to a press release from Geneseo Police Chief Eric Osganian, Nathaniel Panipinto, 28, is charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree, a B felony, Felony Aggravated Unlicensed Operation, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree, DWI, Consumption of Alcohol in a Motor Vehicle, and an Equipment Violation.
The police officer found Panipinto to be in possession of 30 morphine sulfate pills, as well as Temazepam and Prednisone.
If convicted, Panipinto could face a minimum of 1 to 3 years in prison, and a maximum of 25 years.
Panipinto was unlicensed to drive due to a DWI arrest made by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office in the summer of 2014 for DWI.
The arrest was made as part of the statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown Enforcement coinciding with St. Patrick’s Day, whereby village police as well as the Sheriff’s Office increase manpower on the roads to watch especially for DWI drivers. The crackdown will continue until March 18.
