ELLICOTT-WNYNewsNow learned exclusively Friday night plans for the Town of Ellicott to sever ties with the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force.
Jamestown Police Chief Harry Snellings confirmed the tip through multiple evening conversations with reporter Ryan Hedrick.
“I was advised by (Ellicott Police Department) Chief (William) Ohnmeiss that his drug investigator has been cut from his budget and that we (Task Force) will be losing that position soon,” Snellings said. “I assured Chief Ohnmeiss that we will continue to assist their agency as much as we can.”
The drug investigator, a full-time patrol officer with EPD, became a full-time member of the Task Force last July.
WNYNewsNow will have complete coverage Monday.
