On Sunday afternoon just before 2 pm Cortland County Sheriff’s deputies stopped a vehicle near the Wendy’s on Clinton Avenue in Cortland.
Not having a front license plate didn’t seem right, and officers soon learned the inspection sticker was altered.
Jentre Bergman, 26, of Scott, was driving and here’s what county police say they found in the vehicle:
- A hypodermic needle
- Two loaded firearms
- An untagged animal carcass
Bergman faces police and Environmental Conservation charges of Possession of a Forged Instrument, Possessing a Hypodermic Needle, Loaded firearms in the vehicle, Illegally Possessing Protected Wildlife, displaying a Forged Inspection Sticker, No Distinctive/Unsecure/Dirty License Plate.
Sheriff’s Sgt. A.D. Phelps says Bergman was released after arraignment Sunday night and is due back in court on December 13.
