Cortland Man Arrested After Violating Court Order on Weapons Possession


The Cortland County Sheriff’s Office assisted the City of Cortland Police Department back on January 10th with an investigation on Woodland Ave. in the City of Cortland.

Before the investigation began by both departments, a court ordered 38 year old Nicholas G. Stone of Cortland to surrender any and all firearms, rifles or shotguns to the Sheriff’s Office. He was also directed not to secure or possess anymore firearms, rifles or shotguns after he surrendered his current weapons.

While officers were conducting their investigation, they discovered Stone violated his court order and did not surrender his firearms, which he was no longer permitted to possess.

On Monday, January 30th, Stone was arrested and arraigned with charges of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 4th, 3 counts, and Criminal Contempt in the 2nd, all Misdemeanors. He was remanded to Cortland County Jail after his arraignment in court on cash bail.
