Pair arrested for weapons, drug charges after Machias incident

On June 4, 2020, SP Machias Troopers arrested David A. Coffey, 39, of Yorkshire, NY for Criminal Possession of a Weapon 3rd Degree, Reckless Endangerment 2nd Degree, Criminal Possession of Stolen Property 5th Degree, and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th Degree and Abigail C. Klink, 23, of Freedom, NY for Criminal Possession of a Firearm and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th Degree.

Troopers investigating an incident at a location on State Route 16 in the town of Machias determined both suspects had been involved in assaulting another party with a motor vehicle and discharging a firearm.

Both were arrested and arraigned in Cattaraugus County Court, where Coffey was remanded to Cattaraugus County Jail without bail and Klink was remanded in lieu of $2,500 bail. Both are due to return to that court later this month.
