Several people are facing serious charges after a series of search warrants were executed and four taken into custody after a drug bust in Waterloo.
On November 29 the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, along with members of its Narcotics Unit, conducted a series of search warrants across multiple locations, targeting narcotics possession and sales.
The operations were carried out at TK Tavern on East Main Street, a residence on Waterloo-Geneva Road, and several vehicles belonging to individuals implicated in the case. This effort represents a significant crackdown on drug-related activities in the community.
Four individuals were apprehended and charged with various drug-related offenses. Kaitlyn N. Tyrrell, Dawson A. Dressing, Trejan M. Mills, and Morgan E. Bellis face charges ranging from criminal possession and sale of a controlled substance to unlawfully dealing with a child.
The investigation revealed that Tyrrell, Dressing, and Mills allegedly sold cocaine to undercover officers between September and November. Additionally, Mills and Bellis were found with cocaine in their residence where a child under two years old lived.
During the searches, law enforcement officers confiscated cocaine, U.S. currency, digital scales, and packaging materials.
All four suspects were arraigned and released on their own recognizance. Child Protective Services have been notified and are involved in the ongoing investigation.
The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office acknowledged the collaborative effort of multiple law enforcement agencies, including the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office, Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, Geneva Police Department, Waterloo Police Department, and New York State Police, in addressing drug sales and possession in the region.
