Buffalo, NY – Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports Deputy Day’s traffic stop at West Main Street and Route 219 in the Village of Springville resulted in the arrests of Logan Shearer and Jamar Mills on drug charges.


At 2:30 A.M. on March 2, Deputy Day stopped a vehicle operated by Shearer, 21, of Olean for a vehicle and traffic violation.  The Deputy’s investigation revealed the operator did not have a driver’s license; meanwhile, Deputy Bauer arrived to aid in the investigation and began interviewing the passenger Mills, 22, of Buffalo.  When Mills began making erratic movements, attempted to lock the vehicle’s doors, refused to listen to police commands and finally resisted the Deputies, Mills was taken into custody.


During the subsequent search of the vehicle, the Deputies discovered a bag with a quantity of heroin, and a search of the subjects discovered a bag with a quantity of cocaine in Mills’ possession.


Shearer is charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and vehicle and traffic violations and Mills is charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, obstruction of governmental administration and resisting arrest.


Both defendants were transported to the Erie County Holding Center pending their arraignment in Village of Springville Court.
