MASSENA - A 22-year-old Cornwall Island, Ont. woman was sent to the St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, on Wednesday after she was picked up on an arrest warrant for a January 2012 charge of possessing 38 Percocet pills without a prescription during a secondary inspection at the U.S. port of entry in Rooseveltown.
The St. Lawrence County Sheriffs Department arrested Kacey C. Printup Wednesday on the warrant that had been signed on Feb. 15, 2012 by Massena Town Justice James M. Crandall for third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
She was arraigned Wednesday by Massena Justice Gerald P. Sharlow and sent to the St. Lawrence County jail on $25,000 cash or $50,000 secured bond, to reappear Friday afternoon.
Printup had been charged by the St. Lawrence County Sheriffs Department on Jan. 6, 2012 with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance after they alleged that she was in possession of 38 Percocet pills with the intent to sell them.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers had referred Printup for a secondary inspection at about 2:14 p.m. that day at the U.S. port of entry in Rooseveltown after they said she appeared nervous during initial questioning.
Throughout my questioning of Ms. Printup numerous signs of nervousness were apparent i.e. shaking hands, fresh lit cigarette, avoiding eye contact, over friendly personality. Upon the conclusion of my questions, I referred Ms. Printup for a secondary inspection, Customs and Border Protection Officer Mark W. Roberts said in a statement he signed for the court.
They allegedly found 38 Percocet pills in Printups front pants pocket during the secondary inspection. Printup allegedly told officers she had paid $160 for the pills and could sell them for $5 a pill, according to court documents.
