MASSENA, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say the mayor and former police chief of a northern New York town was arrested on drug charges after an undercover drug operation.
The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office says Timmy Currier, the mayor of Massena, threw a gram of crack cocaine out of his car window before his arrest Tuesday.
Currier was arrested on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence and failure to comply with a police officer. He was arraigned virtually and will appear in court at a later date.
A woman who answered the phone at the Currier home on Wednesday declined to comment.
