Livingston County drug sting nets 13
Geneseo, N.Y.-Thirteen suspects are in custody following a seven month investigation into alleged drug dealers in Livingston County, according to the sheriff's office.
"I think it sends a message to the community that we know who other drug dealers are," said Greg McCaffrey, Livingston County District Attorney. "We're actively trying to get them and we're not going to tolerate people selling drugs in our county."
The investigation began in July of 2013, according to Chief Deputy Matt Burgess of the Livingston County Sheriff's Office and administrator of the drug task force.
"We wanted to make sure of the timing of this," said Burgess of the lengthy process that culminated with arrests made early Friday morning.
The multi-agency effort netted drug dealers from Lima, Avon, Geneseo and Mt. Morris, State Police and sheriff's deputies.
The suspects are accused of various crimes surrounding transactions involving marijuana, crack, methylone, according to Burgess.
Those arrested include Brian R. Houck of Avon, Mallory J. Clancy of Hornellsville, Keion L. Peterson of Rochester, Sheena Natrigo-Perdue of Livonia, Daniel Cathron of Lima, Monique M. Chavenka of Lima, Lauren H. Krebbeks of Lima, David M. Villodas of Mount Morris, Joseph Fletcher of Geneseo, Chelsea M. Dacey of Mount Morris and Dawn M. Davis of Leicester, and Nathan Lerner of Geneseo. As of late Friday, police were still searching for Laura Fletcher of Batavia.
