GENESEO: Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of several individuals on drug charges following a traffic stop, as well as a wanted man taken into custody on an outstanding drug charge.  On November 27th, Deputy Brandan Flickner conducted a traffic stop off of Lakeville Road (20a) in the Town of Geneseo.The Deputy Sheriff identified the following individuals as the occupants, Barney C. May, 36 from Swain, Damian M. Enslow, 26 from Wayland, Nicholas O. Velez, 28 from Canaseraga, and Dylan Outman, 23 year from Hornell as the operator. 
Outman was found to have a suspended driver’s license for past drug charges. Outman was taken into custody and charged with Aggravated Unlicensed Operation in the 3rd Degree. Enslow was found to be an active warrant suspect, wanted by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office for past drug charges. Deputies said a vehicle search was conducted and seized were a hypodermic needle and two bags of heroin. Outman, Enslow, May and Velez were all taken into custody for Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th Degree. Velez was additionally charged with Criminal Possession of a Hypodermic Instrument.  Further investigation led to Enslow being charged with another count of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th Degree after he was allegedly found to have crack cocaine hidden down his pants. 
Outman was additionally charged with the felony of Tampering with Physical Evidence after allegedly taking items, believed to be drugs, out of hidden pockets and eating them. All four individuals were charged and transported to the Livingston County Jail where they were turned over to Central Booking Deputies for processing and pre-arraignment detention.
The District Attorney's Office gave a bail recommendation of $4,000 cash or $8,000 bond with regard to Outman’s felony charge.  All four men were arraigned on November 27th in Geneseo Court before Justice Kathleen Houston.  The Judge remanded the men  to the custody of the Sheriff with the following bail set:
Enslow:  $500 cash or $1,000 bond
Outman: $1,000 cash or $2,500 bond 
Velez: $500 cash or $1,000 bond
May: $250 cash or $500 bond
"The lesson to be learned here is don’t try and pull one over on our Deputy Sheriffs," stated Sheriff Dougherty.   "They are well trained in drug interdiction efforts and you are only putting yourself in jeopardy for more charges by attempting to hide, conceal or eat dangerous drugs.  If you are foolish enough to travel in or through Livingston County with illegal drugs, plan on getting caught and arrested."
