           Charles K. Townsend, 31 years old from Dansville, is WANTED for Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 3rd Degree (intent to sell) and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 5th Degree.  The charges stem from a traffic stop where a Sheriff’s K-9 hit on the vehicle.  Following a vehicle impound and signed search warrant, over a half ounce of powder cocaine was located, as well as marijuana.   If you have any information on the whereabouts of Townsend please contact the Livingston County Sheriff's Office at 585-243-7100.

While investigating individuals with active warrants, it was discovered that sixteen (16) additional warrant suspects had either moved out of Livingston County or out of New York State.
According to Sheriff Dougherty, “This was a very productive three days.  I am proud of our members and their commitment to serving our county.  Stopping the flow of drugs into our communities and holding those accountable for their failure to appear in court sends the message that we are going to proactively seek you out and protect our neighborhoods.  Our proactive approach to fighting crime is one of the reasons our residents enjoy the continued decreases in crime trends and continue to see Livingston County one of the safest counties.”
The initiative was led by Patrol Services Chief Deputy Burgess.  Assisting were, Sergeant Joseph Breu, Investigator Joshua Monster, Deputy Michael Wade with K-9 partner Hondo, Deputy Brandon Flickner, Deputy Jason Butterbrodt, Deputy Mathew Thomas, and Deputy Matthew Moran; all of the Police Services section of the Sheriff’s Office. Several members of the Correctional Services section also assisted by processing all these individuals at Central Booking inside the Livingston County Jail.
