Anonymous tip leads to Cheektowaga drug arrests

An anonymous tip prompted an undercover investigation on Poinciana Parkway in Cheektowaga and led to the arrests of three men and a woman on marijuana charges last week, Assistant Police Chief Jim Speyer said Friday.

Speyer credited a “concerned neighbor”who used the town’s TIP411 text system with alerting the department to the drug activity. Detectives then began monitoring a home on the street.

On Sept. 24, detectives stopped a car as it backed out of the driveway. They noticed a smell of burning marijuana and arrested three men and a woman, ages 17 to 20. Speyer did not identify the four suspects but said all were charged with unlawful possession of marijuana.

“The neighbors on that street had become concerned about a group of youths hanging around that house yelling, screaming, using drugs and causing a nuisance and disrupting the quality of life in the neighborhood,” Speyer said.

He said tips, which are completely anonymous, can be made to the Cheektowaga Police Department by using TIP411 (847411) and typing CPDNY and texting the information.
