A 32-year-old Syracuse man, Chanchhayavan Chourb, has been found guilty of two counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance and could face up to 15 years in prison. The verdict came after a three-day trial in which Chourb was found guilty on all counts.


Cayuga County District Attorney Brittany Grome Antonacci revealed that Chourb was initially pulled over in Auburn around 1:00 AM on July 1st of the previous year for neglecting to use a turn signal. Chourb was discovered to be driving with only a learner’s permit, making it illegal for him to operate a vehicle unaccompanied. Upon exiting the car, Chourb attempted to flee on foot but was swiftly apprehended by law enforcement.


During the pursuit, officers discovered a large bag of cocaine near South Street, where Chourb had attempted to escape. He was found to be in possession of approximately six grams of powder cocaine and more than three grams of crack cocaine.

Chourb is scheduled to appear in court for sentencing on June 29th.
