Travis has been charged with multiple offenses, including one count of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a Class B felony, as well as four counts of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
Travis was remanded to the Steuben County Jail. The investigation involved collaborative efforts from the Elmira Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit and the Corning Police Department.
