A City of Cortland man was arrested on Sunday after he was found to be in possession of heroin and methamphetamine, according to a City of Cortland police report.

On Sunday around 9 a.m., city police assisted the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office with a warrant for an arrest. The warrant, which was attached to an unrelated petit larceny charge against Tyler J. Forshee, led city police to Forshee’s residence on Pomeroy Street.

In the midst of Forshee’s arrest, city police found 195 bags of heroin and a “large amount” of meth, the report states.

Forshee has been charged with three counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance (a Class-B Felony). City detective lieutenant Dan Edwards told The Cortland Voice Tuesday morning that Forshee intended on selling the drugs.

Forshee was arraigned and sent to the Cortland County Jail without bail. He is scheduled to appear in city court at 9:15 a.m. Wednesday.
