The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a 37-year-old convicted felon on an array of drug charges after fleeing police in a vehicle.
Investigators say Shawn M. Rousseau, 37, of Lodi had an active arrest warrant for unlawful fleeing in a vehicle and reckless driving.
He failed to comply with officers when they initiated a stop on July 15, which resulted in a pursuit in the village of Waterloo.
After Rousseau was taken into custody, investigators executed a search warrant on his vehicle. Police seized 5 ounces of powder and crack cocaine, Psilocybin, fentanyl, methamphetamine, Suboxone, Xanax, Adderal, as well as a scale and currency.
Rousseau was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, four counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, three counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, two counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, as well as criminal use of drug paraphernalia, unlawfully fleeing in a vehicle, and reckless driving.
He was held on no bail due to previous felony convictions. The Narcotics Unit was assisted by members of the Uniformed Road Patrol, Waterloo Police Department and New York State Police.
