At approximately 6:59 p.m., Livingston County Sheriff’s Deputies stopped Young on Interstate 390 in the Town of Avon for traffic violation.  

During the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Young was in possession of 90 bags of heroin as well as a number of hypodermic needles located inside his vehicle.  Young was charged with 4th degree criminal possession of a controlled  substance (class C felony) and criminal possession of a hypodermic needle, (class A misdemeanor).  Young was also charged with other traffic violations, including possession of a bogus NYS inspection certificate.

Young was arraigned in Caledonia Town Court, and remanded to the Livinston County Jail in lieu of $7,500 bail or $15,000 bond.  He is scheduled to appear in Caledonia Town Court Nov. 17.

A Geneva woman faces charges of second degree criminal impersonation and third degree criminal possession of a controlled substance after being stopped for a traffic infraction on Route 14 in Starkey Nov. 15. Yates County Deputies report Robin L. Bisnett, 46, of 473 Hamilton St., Building 3, apt. 34, Geneva, gave officers a false name and date of birth when she was stopped at about 6 p.m.

After she was placed under arrest, the deputies found approximately 120 bindles (small packets) of heroin and several hundred dollars in cash in the vehicle she was operating. The vehicle was impounded and Bisnett was arraigned in the Town of Benton because the Starkey Justice was not available. She was sent to Yates County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond.
