Allegany traffic stop results in arrests for DWAI-Drugs, larcenies

On April 30, 2020, SP Olean Troopers arrested Shaun D. Costa, 36, of Allegany, NY for Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs.

During a traffic stop on Maple Avenue in the village of Allegany, Troopers determined Costa had been operating a vehicle while in an impaired condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. Costa was then arrested and transported to SP Olean, where a Drug Recognition Expert evaluation revealed him to be impaired by drugs. He was also identified as the suspect in two larcenies from vehicles on Chipmonk Road in the town of Allegany.

Costa was released with appearance tickets for Allegany Village Court and Allegany Town Court, where he is due to appear later this month.
