A Jamestown woman is in Chautauqua County Jail after she allegedly sold cocaine to Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force agents in the city.
Alicia M. Birt, 22, of 17B Bradmar Circle, Jamestown, was charged Wednesday with one count each of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. A warrant had been issued for Birt by Jamestown City Court after Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force members brought information forward on the alleged cocaine sales.
According to a press release from the task force, the arrest culminates a three-month investigation. Chautauqua County Sheriff's Deputies transported Birt to Sherman Court for arraignment. She was later committed to Chautauqua County Jail without bail pending further action by the court.
