Convict Jailed Again on Drug Charges

A former Buffalo man on probation for drug offenses in McKean County is in jail again on more drug charges, and for having a stolen gun.

State Parole Agent Russ Orner was conducting a routine check of Demario Watts when he found a semi-automatic handgun under the mattress in his South Avenue apartment, according to papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office. He also found four baggies of suspected marijuana and a digital scale.

Orner contacted city police, who got a search warrant and executed it Friday afternoon. They found a 9 mm handgun, a partially smoked suspected marijuana cigarette, Zig-Zag papers, more than 50 individually wrapped baggies of marijuana, a digital scale and a glass pipe containing burnt suspected marijuana.

Police added that the gun had been reported stolen from Osborne Place on Friday.

Watts is charged with felony counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, receiving stolen property and prohibited possession of a firearm.

Watts is jailed on $25,000 bail and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for February 28 in Central Court.

Legalize JUST the green plant. And take the guns out of the transaction. Remove the crime, remove the criminal from prospering from said crime. Tax, Regulate, and Profit... Turn the black market off, and put it in the government coffers.

The 'Reefer Madness' propaganda generation is over.. Time for society to change, and reflect itself!
