On March 14, 2023, Troopers arrested Michael J. Hyde II, age 45 of Brighton, NY for criminal possession of a controlled substance 7th, and issued multiple vehicle and traffic tickets.

On March 14, 2023, around 12:51 a.m., Troopers were patrolling on State Route 30, in the town of Harrietstown when they observed a vehicle with no plate lamp.  The Troopers initiated a traffic stop on a 2009 grey Mercury Sable, interviewed the driver who provided a name and date of birth, but no photo identification.  The Troopers searched the name and date of birth provided and revealed Hyde had a suspended NYS drivers license and an active bench.  Hyde was detained for the warrant. 

The vehicle was searched and located a bookbag that contained a black plastic container that was locked with a padlock.  Inside of the container was methamphetamine, and smoking devices containing residue. 

Hyde was arrested and transported to SP Tupper Lake for processing.  He was released on appearance tickets returnable to the Town of Harrietstown Court for a later date in March.
