Utica Man Arrested Again, Twice In One Week
Utica, NY (WIBX) – A Utica man was arrested for the second time in one week, following a traffic stop on State Street in Utica.
According to the Utica Police Department, officers stopped a vehicle passing a stop sign. The 17 year-old driver failed to produce his license, saying the vehicle was not his but belonged to someone else in the car.
Smelling marijuana, the officer checked the car, finding two glass tubes used to smoke crack cocaine.
The other occupants of the vehicle, Mark Morey, 28, of Erie Street, and Robert White, 56, of Vernon, were arrested and charged with misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance. White was also charged with a traffic summons, as was the 17 year-old driver.
Morey was also arrested on Monday night, after he attempted to steal electronics from the Horatio Street Wal-Mart. He was charged with three counts of petit larceny, from previous shoplifting incidents, and may face more charges pending police review of more surveillance video.
