On September 29, 2022, SP Machias Troopers arrested Michelle L. Perrington, 33, of Freedom, NY for Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs and four counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th Degree.
During a traffic stop on Stranburg Avenue in the village of Delevan, Troopers observed Perrington exhibiting obvious signs of impairment and determined she had been operating a motor vehicle while in an impaired condition. She was also found to be in possession of methamphetamine, cocaine, crack cocaine, and heroin. Perrington failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. She was then arrested and transported to SP Machias, where a Drug Recognition Expert evaluation confirmed impairment.
Perrington was released with appearance tickets for Yorkshire Town Court, where she is due to appear in October.
