Multiple individuals were recently arrested after police seized over $20,000 in drugs, according to a report.

The Cortland County Sheriff’s report stated that on Monday (March 18), officers stopped a vehicle on Route 11 in the town of Cortlandville for an insufficient traffic signal. 

According to the report, Eric R. Seubert, 37, of New Woodstock, was discovered to be driving with a suspended license. 

Upon further investigation, Seubert and his passengers Tyler J. Conkling (26, of South New Berlin) and Adam L. Simpson (36, of McDonough) were in possession of 566 bags of Fentanyl, 46 grams of methamphetamine, approximately 115 grams of synthetic cathinone known as “Molly”, approximately 11.5 grams of cocaine, approximately two grams of Xylazine, 283 Buprenorphine pills, approximately 1.4 grams of alpha-methyl fentanyl, a digital scale, packaging material and an undisclosed amount of money.

The report stated that the approximate street value of the seized drugs is $22,000. Conkling was in possession of a loaded “ghost gun,” which is an unserialized handgun.

All three individuals were charged with four counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance (Class-B Felonies), fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance (Class-D Felonies), two counts of second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia (Class-A Misdemeanors) and possession of synthetic drugs (local law, Class-A Misdemeanor).
