Alleged SF meth defendants held for Grand Jury

On August 17, 2012, a felony hearing was held in Seneca Falls Town Court involving defendants Rick Currier and Annilace Wills, who were both charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the second degree (class A felony) and unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in the third degree (class D felony).Currier and Wills were arrested by Sheriff Deputies following a joint investigation by the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division, Seneca Falls Police Department and New York State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team. The investigation occurred after an alert Seneca Falls resident notified the Sheriff’s Office upon the discovery of suspected drug-related items in a trash container on Porter Street.At the heating, Seneca County District Attorney Barry Porsch presented three police witnesses and one civilian witness. Seneca Falls attorney Joseph Lucchesi represented Wills and Assistant Public Defender John Nabinger represented Currier. Acting Town Justice Dean Mattoon ruled that the prosecutor presented sufficient evidence to sustain the charges against both defendants, who were remanded to the County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 secured bond. The case will now be presented to a Grand Jury. The defendants allegedly came to Seneca Falls from Louisiana about two weeks ago.
