JAMESTOWN – Two City of Jamestown residents face drug charges after police said they found a quantity of crystal methamphetamine and fentanyl mixture inside a house at 133 Lakeview Ave. Monday morning.
Justin D. Cusimano, 35, and Justine M. Hancock, 30, are charged with three counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal using drug paraphernalia after Jamestown Police said they found drug paraphernalia, 3.6 grams of crystal methamphetamine, suboxone strips that were allegedly packed for sale, and a quantity of methamphetamine and a fentanyl mixture.
Police originally responded to the address after they received information that Cusimano violated an order of protection. He is additionally charged with aggravated family offense and second-degree criminal contempt.
The duo was held in city jail pending arraignment.
“We have now seen it (the mixture) several times over the past month,” Jamestown Police Captain Robert Samuelson told WNYNewsNow. “This is a very dangerous drug (fentanyl) that can be fatal if taken. Many of our overdose deaths are the result of fentanyl or a mixture of it.”
Police ask anyone with information on the illegal sales and trafficking of narcotics to contact the Jamestown Police’s anonymous tip line at 483-TIPS (8477) or submit tips via the Tip 411 App.
