A traffic stop in Livingston County leads to drug charges for two men.
Deputies say they stopped a vehicle on I-390 in the Town of Avon. Investigators say the driver, 33-year-old Michael Mullen of Hornell, had a suspended driver’s license.
During the course of the stop, deputies say Mullen and a passenger, 33-year-old Bradley Hollenbeck of Andover, were in possession of crack cocaine as well as other drug paraphernalia. According to deputies, Mullen was also in possession of a pool stick that had been cut off to be used as weapon.
Mullen was arrested for criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument, criminal possession of a weapon and aggravated unlicensed operation. Holleneck was arrested for one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree.
After arraignment, both men were taken to the Livingston County Jail. Deputies say Mullen was then found to be in possession of crack cocaine upon entering the facility and was arrested for a second time for promoting prison contraband.
