Cortland Police Report Two Weapons Arrests


Handgun Threat:

A woman and her daughter told police someone pointed a handgun at them as they drove on Church Street on Valentine’s Day morning.

They didn’t know the man, but got the license of his vehicle. It wasn’t long before a Cortland County Sheriff’s deputy spotted the vehicle at the Thrifty Shopper on Rt 222, according to Cortland Police.

Corey Grier, 38, of Cortland was arrested and the vehicle searched. Lt. Michael Strangeway says police found Oxycodone pills and a loaded handgun with no make, model or serial number – what’s called a “ghost gun.”

Grier faces felony charges of weapons possession and use of a firearm, along with menacing, endangering the welfare of a child and drug possession.

Knife Attack:

Cortland Police were called for two men fighting on Arthur Avenue Saturday afternoon.

One had a knife and cut the other twice, leaving what were described as non-life threatening injuries.

Troy Schermerhorn, 32, of Cortland is charged with felony assault and weapons possession, along with menacing. He’s due back in City Court on March 11.
