A “no knock” search warrant executed by Penn Yan Police and the Yates County Sheriff’s Office at a North Avenue residence Wednesday evening resulted in the arrest of a 58-year-old Penn Yan woman.
The warrant came as a result of a joint investigation into drug sales from the residence. Cynthia Taylor was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminally using drug paraphernalia and criminal nuisance after officers seized cocaine, drug paraphernalia and 5-THOUSAND dollars in cash from the residence. Taylor also faces charges from the sheriff’s office for criminal possession and sale of a controlled substance.
Deputies also arrested 38-year-old Roger Keech at the scene and arrested him on a warrant for criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance.
Taylor was sent to jail following her arraignment, while Keech is being held by the sheriff’s department on their charges.
From Chief Dunham: “The gun in the photo (below) is not an actual firearm it is a .43 caliber defense ball handgun that shoots non-lethal rounds.”
