BATAVIA, N.Y. (WIVB) — An Orleans County man allegedly had illegal narcotics in his possession when he was arrested for an unrelated reason in Batavia, according to the Genesee County Sheriff’s office.

On Sunday, 31-year-old Dustin Forkell was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance. In addition to that, the Sheriff’s office says he allegedly falsified business documents and tried to pretend he was someone else while being processed at the county jail.
