The New York State Troopers from the Bath barracks announce the arrest of a Bath man on drug possession charges stemming from a 911 call earlier in the day. On May 31st, 2018, Troopers at the SP Painted Post barracks responded to a call involving the possible menacing of a female by a man with a handgun in the Town of Erwin. The man, later identified as 39 year-old Mario Hentz of Bath, New York, was located in the Village of Bath by local police and taken into custody without incident. Troopers from the SP Bath barracks responded to the police station to take custody of Hentz and conducted a thorough search of his person which resulted in the discovery of one clear plastic bag containing approximately two grams of crack cocaine that Hentz had hidden in his sock. Hentz was subsequently charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 5th Degree (a class “D” felony) and Menacing 2nd Degree (a class “A” misdemeanor) and arraigned in the Town of Campbell Court before Town Justice Patricia Horton. Hentz was remanded to the Steuben County Jail without bail and is scheduled to next appear in the Bath Village Court on June 6th at 3:00 p.m.
