The Broome County Special Investigations Unit Task Force says a large amount of Fentanyl and cash have been seized in searches at Nowlan Ridge Estates in Port Crane, a Schubert Street apartment in Binghamton and a U-Haul storage unit in Johnson City.
Authorities say they arrested 32-year-old Worth “Cut” Brown of the Schubert Street address and 37-year-old Amy Nieves, who lives at the Nowlan Road mobile home park after executing the search warrants October 16.
Investigators say searches at the Nieves’ mobile home and a vehicle as well as Brown’s apartment and the storage unit turned up 8.6 ounces of Fentanyl, worth around $27,000, $81,511 in cash from suspected drug sales, a loaded derringer handgun, ammunition, powder cocaine, digital scales and drug packaging materials.
Officers say a complaint had been made to the New York State Office of Children and Family Services’ hotline and they found a five-month-old child at Nieves’ home. The baby was been turned over to a family member.
