Narcotics/Warrant Arrest

On Janaury 29th, 2019 at 12:16 AM, Tompkins County Sheriff's Deputies were patrolling Five Mile Drive in the Town of Ithaca.  While patrolling, deputies observed a gray sedan with an equipment violation.  Deputies conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle on Coy Glen Road and determined the passenger, Michael C. Gilmore, age 24 of Ithaca, NY had an active arrest warrant out of The Tompkins County Sheriff's Office.  The warrant was for Petit Larceny (Class A Misdemeanor) for a case handled by this office in July of 2018.

During the course of the investigation, deputies learned that Gilmore was concealing narcotics on his person.  A searched yielded a plastic baggy of a white powdery substance which later tested positive for cocaine.  Gilmore was further charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree.  Gilmore was released on appearance tickets for both the warrant and the new drug possession charge.
