Two people were arrested by the Plattsburgh City Police Narcotics Enforcement Unit Wednesday on charges related to an ongoing investigation into drug sales in the Plattsburgh area. The investigation was started this past summer by the New York State Police, with the Plattsburgh City Police Department's assistance.
The Narcotics Enforcement Unit was contacted by the U.S. Marshals Service with information about a male, Marvin Chinn, 26, of Schenectady, NY, who had an active warrant out of Schenectady, NY, for Burglary 2nd degree and Criminal Possession of a Weapon 2nd degree, both Class C Felonies, and was allegedly evading police at 24 Clinton Street, APT #301.
During the execution of a search warrant by the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office Tri-County Special Response Team at 24 Clinton Street, APT #301, police seized approximately 30 grams of crack cocaine, $6,058 in U.S. Currency, and miscellaneous drug packaging and distribution equipment.
The resident, Manda Parrish, 29, was arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 3rd degree (with intent to sell) and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 3rd degree (with a weight of one half-ounce or more). Both are Class B Felonies. Parrish was released on her own recognizance per New York bail reform legislation.
Chinn, who was found in the apartment's rear bedroom, was taken into custody and transported by the U.S. Marshals to Schenectady, where he was remanded to jail without bail.
