On May 1st, 2019, Troopers out of SP Jamestown arrested Jacob Atwell, 24, and Nikki Coulson, 32, both of Gerry, for Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

The Troopers responded to the four corners in Gerry for a report of a child in the roadway. Investigation revealed that a two year old child was in the northbound lane of Route 60 dressed in only a diaper, completely unsupervised by adults or a babysitter, and parents Atwell and Coulson were inside their residence, unaware of the child’s situation until a good samaritan brought the child home. Atwell and Coulson were placed under arrest, processed at SP Jamestown and issued appearance tickets. Atwell and Coulson are scheduled to appear in the town of Gerry Court on a later date.
