JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Jamestown man has been taken into custody on a felony indictment for criminal possession of a controlled substance, police say.

According to Jamestown authorities, John Anzalone, 47, was found Monday afternoon during a vehicle stop on W. 3rd St. His indictment had been handed up by a Chautauqua County Grand Jury this past Wednesday.

Anzalone’s arrest was in connection with a raid that happened on Hazzard St. back in January.
