On Saturday night just before 9:30, the City of Cortland Police Department reported to the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office they had a subject who had an active arrest warrant by the Sheriff’s Office.
The person, identified as 33 year old Lawrence A. Nemecek of Cortlandville, was taken into custody by an officer of the Sheriff’s Office after their arrival to the Cortland Police Station. As Nemecek was being searched, he was found to be in possession of a synthetic drug.
He was charged with Unlawful Sale, Possession, and/or Use of Dangerous Substances or Synthetic Drugs in addition to his outstanding arrest warrant. Nemecek was transported to the Cortland County Jail for processing on his arrest warrant; he was issued an appearance ticket for his possession charge.
Nemecek is due in Cortland City Court later this month.
