She pleaded not guilty to the charges. She is being held in the Livingston County Jail on $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond. 

Brown was a passenger in Morgan's car when they were pulled over on Rte. 63 in Geneseo around 5:45 p.m. Wednesday. Police say Brown also tried to run away.

The search in Livingston County continues for Morgan who is considered armed and dangerous. Authorities say Morgan pointed a gun at an officer during the traffic stop.

Sheriff Dougherty says Morgan is a career criminal. Morgan spent approximately 211 months in federal prison and was released in March of 2017 for conspiracy to posses with intent to distribute controlled substance. Prior to those charges, Morgan was arrested for robbery in Texas in 1994 where he was sentenced to two years in prison.

The sheriff says Morgan took off because he thought there was a warrant out for his arrest.

Sheriff Dougherty says residents in the area should keep their eyes open and doors locked, but also know that they are safe with the amount of law enforcement in the area.

"I wouldn't, not live life," Sheriff Dougherty says. "If you have things [to do], I would go do it."

Morgan is 5'7" and 200 lbs and was last seen wearing a grey hoodie, grey baseball cap, and blue jeans. Morgan is now clean-shaven. 

If you have any information on Morgan's whereabouts, you are asked to call 911.
