Forestville pair accused of heroin possession

BRANT — Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports two Forestville residents were arrested Monday for alleged heroin possession following an investigation into a suspicious vehicle report.

Deputies Mosier and Schenfield were called around 2:50 p.m. by Seneca Nation of Indian Marshals for a suspicious vehicle on Milestrip Road on the Seneca Nation of Indians Territory. When they investigated the incident, the deputies discovered a loaded hypodermic needle, a spoon holding white powder, and five bags of heroin in plain view within the vehicle.

Twenty-four-year-old Joy Sprague and 26-year-old Jared Kopczynski were arrested and each charged with one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance and possession of a hypodermic instrument.

The defendants are held in the Erie County Holding Center on $250 bail pending their arraignment.
