JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) - Jamestown Police say they executed a search warrant Thursday evening and saw occupants of the residence making narcotic drugs with a butane torch. Police say they searched 414 Winsor Street in a drug investigation and arrested 33-year-old Joseph J. Thayer.
Police say during their investigation they learned the location was used for the sale of narcotic drugs and the manufacturing of crack cocaine. During the search police say they found eight grams of cocaine, 300 grams of marijuana, a large quantity of prescription narcotic pills and various drug paraphernalia. Police say they also found items they believe were stolen including flat screen televisions and other electronics, that may have been traded for narcotic drugs.
Thayer was arrested and charged with a number of drug charges, including two felonies. Police say they expect to make more charges in the investigation.
Thayer’s residence was condemned as uninhabitable because of several housing code violations.
