Troop C Commander


On August 12, 2020 at approximately 3:02 p.m., New York State Police at Oneonta arrested Jordan T. Pratt, age 21 of Ithaca, NY for the felonies of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the third degree (one count for the possession and a second count for intent to sell) and two counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the second degree. 

Troopers monitoring traffic on Interstate 88 in the town of Otego observed a vehicle traveling eastbound with a vehicle and traffic infraction.  A traffic stop was initiated, and troopers detected an odor of marihuana prompting a further investigation.  The driver and three passengers were interviewed. 

An investigation revealed that Pratt (who was a passenger) was in possession of two illegal and loaded handguns and a quantity of drugs.  The driver and two other passengers who are all minors were not charged. 

Pratt was arrested and arraigned virtually while at SP Oneonta.  He was remanded to the Otsego County jail on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.
