Five people are facing a slew of charges following an incident at Great Swamp Enterprises, a trucking company, in Seneca Falls.

Seneca Falls Police tell News10NBC they were called to 61 Ovid Street for a disturbance early Monday morning. We’re told this was the second call to this location. When officers were called out the first time, no disturbance was found. The second time officers were called, we’re told they saw a van ramming into a fence next to Great Swamp Enterprises. We’re told an officer pulled up behind the van with its emergency lights on. Then police say the driver of the van started to back up and hit the driver’s side of the patrol car, causing damage. The officer was not injured.

Police say there were five occupants in the van including a minor and all five were drinking. Investigators say a small quantity of marijuana was found during a search of the vehicle.

Police charged the driver, 30-year-old Carlin Seneca, with felony DWI, reckless driving, refusal to submit to a breath test, unsafe backing, open container, failure to notify DMV of address change, two counts of reckless endangerment, unlawfully dealing with a child, reckless criminal mischief and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Joshua Waterman, 28 of Gowanda, NY, 28-year-old Tyler Seneca of Irving, NY, and 27-year-old Elijah Jimmerson of Seneca Falls are all charged with unlawfully dealing with a child, unlawful possession of marijuana and open container.

The 17-year-old female, whose name is not being released due to her age, is charged with possession of alcohol under the age of 21, unlawful possession of marijuana and open container.
