On August 17th, 2022, Troopers out of SP Jamestown arrested Jason Carnes, 54, of Bemus Point, for Criminal Mischief 2nd Degree.
The Troopers responded to a Criminal Mischief complaint on Slide Joslyn Road in Bemus Point.  Investigation revealed that members of the Ellery Town Highway Department had recently stoned and oiled the road, and that Carnes had replaced with stone with dirt and placed two fence posts in the middle of the lane, causing over $7,000.00 in damage to the roadway. Carnes turned himself in to SP Jamestown and was processed. Carnes was then issued an appearance ticket and is scheduled to appear in the town of Ellery Court later in the month.
