Machias traffic stop leads to drug arrests for two area men
On September 24, 2019, SP Machias Troopers arrested Tyler M. Seiwert, 28, of Machias, NY and Anthony J. Krepps, 39, of Freedom, NY both for Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 5th Degree, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th Degree, and Possession of a Controlled Substance in a Non-Original Container.
During a traffic stop on State Route 16 in the town of Machias, both subjects were found to be in possession of methamphetamine, cocaine, and buprenorphine for which they did not have a valid prescription.
Both subjects were arrested and arraigned in Machias Town Court, where Seiwert was released under supervision, and Krepps was remanded to the Cattaraugus County Jail. Both are due back in that court at a later date.
