On April 26th, 2019, Troopers out of SP Jamestown arrested Michael Watson, 40, of Jamestown, for Criminal Possession of Stolen Property.

The Troopers responded to the Walnut Creek Trailer Park to assist a Chautauqua County Sheriff Unit locate a suspect that fled on foot from a traffic stop. The suspect was located, identified as Watson, and placed under arrest after it was discovered he had multiple outstanding traffic warrants. The owner of the vehicle gave the Troopers and Deputies permission to search Watson’s possessions which he abandon prior to fleeing the traffic stop. A dealer plate was located inside Watson’s backpack which had previously been reported stolen. Watson was processed at SP Jamestown and transported to the Chautauqua County Jail, pending arraignment.
