Dryden man charged with drug possession days after being evaluated

DRYDEN, N.Y. – A Dryden man who was found unresponsive in his vehicle Saturday was medically evaluated before being arrested on drug possession charges four days later, according to the Cortland County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to the Tops Plaza on Route 281 in Cortlandville at around 12:02 a.m. Saturday for a welfare check.

Jeffrey C. Trescott, 41, was found unresponsive in his vehicle. Inside the vehicle were 4 Oxycodone pills in a prescription bottle not prescribed to Trescott, authorities said.

Trescott was medically evaluated at Cortland Regional Medical Center, where he admitted that the pills were not prescribed to him.

On Wednesday, Trescott was handed an appearance ticket for criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, a misdemeanor.

He is scheduled to appear in Cortlandville Town Court later this month.
