Troop A Commander


On July 12, 2021, SP Olean Troopers arrested James M. Watkins, 20, of West Seneca, NY for Driving While Intoxicated and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th Degree.

During a traffic stop on Parkway Drive in the city of Salamanca, Troopers observed Watkins exhibiting obvious signs of intoxication and determined he had been operating a motor vehicle while in an intoxicated condition. He failed standardized field sobriety tests at the scene. He was also found to be in possession of cocaine.  Watkins was then arrested and transported to SP Olean, where a chemical breath test revealed him to have a 0.09% BAC.

Watkins was released with appearance tickets for Salamanca City Court, where he is due to appear later this month.
