SILVER CREEK - A Silver Creek man has been jailed on drug possession charges following an investigation by the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force and Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office.
Charged with unlawfully growing marijuana, unlawful possession of marijuana and second-degree criminal possession of drug paraphernalia was David D. Sugg, 21, of Maple Place.
Members of the task force and Sheriff's Office at 9 p.m. on Wednesday executed a search warrant at Sugg's residence. The search warrant had been issued earlier Wednesday by the Village of Silver Creek justice.
The execution of the warrant was made without incident, the Sheriff's Office said Thursday in a news release. According to police, the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force obtained information leading to the investigation.
