NUNDA – A Nunda man has been charged in connection with the sale of crystal methamphetamine in the village reports the Livingston County Drug Task Force.
The arrest of Andrew Dean, 33, on June 18, culminated an investigation several months.
Dean was charged with two counts of fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and two counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both class D felonies.
Members of the Livingston County Drug Task Force, along with members of the Nunda Police Department, arrested Dean on a Superior Court indictment warrant issued out of the Livingston County Court.
Dean was turned over to deputies at Livingston County Jail for pre-arraignment detention, as the offenses did qualify for pre-arraignment detention under the state Justice Reform Act due to previous felony convictions.
On June 22, Dean was arraigned on the charges in Livingston County Court by County Court Judge Kevin Van Allen and remanded to the custody of the Sheriff on $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond.
The Livingston County Drug Task Force is comprised of members of the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, police departments in Avon, Caledonia, Dansville, Geneseo, Mount Morris and Nunda; the University Police at SUNY Geneseo and the Livingston County District Attorney’s Office.
The Sheriff’s Office maintains a tip line for reporting illegal drug activity in or around Livingston County. The tipline may be reached at (844) LCSO-TIP and online at www.livingstoncounty.us/sheriff under “TIP LINE.”
