Jamestown Parolee Headed Back To Prison Following Drug Raid

MAYVILLE, NY (WNY News Now) – A parolee arrested following a summertime drug raid in Jamestown is headed back to prison, after police allegedly busted him with drugs and guns. 

44-year-old Anthony Cunningham was arrested by Jamestown Police in June following a search of two address, 47 Charles Street and 15 Cowden Place. 

Inside the Charles Street address, investigators allegedly recovered money, fentanyl, methamphetamine, scales, packaging materials, and a loaded 9mm reportedly stolen from Texas. 

Meanwhile at the Cowden Place house, a search of the residence also allegedly revealed illicit drugs and evidence of drug trafficking.  

The Chautauqua County District Attorney’s Office and Jamestown Police charged him with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, a class B felony and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree: loaded firearm, a class C violent felony following the raid. 

The accused was sentenced Friday to eight years in state prison and three years of post-release supervision for violating the terms of his probation.  

The DA said Cunningham previously was sentenced to a term of five years’ probation in 2018 following a similar drug charge.
