A Bradford woman charged with fleeing police waived a preliminary hearing Wednesday before District Judge Dominic Cercone.
Rachel S. Anderson, 25, of Bradford, is charged with fleeing or attempting to elude an officer and flight to avoid apprehension, third-degree felonies; possessing an instrument of crime, a first-degree misdemeanor; 10 counts of recklessly endangering another person and one count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, second-degree misdemeanors; DUI-controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of possession of a controlled substance, misdemeanors; and several summary charges.
According to the criminal complaint, at 2:53 p.m. Sept. 23, a police officer pulled over Anderson, who was wanted on a state parole warrant for absconding. When the officer walked up to the driver’s door, she sped off, traveling down several streets without stopping at any stop signs and nearly striking an oncoming vehicle. She drove speeds of up to 85 mph and repeatedly crossed the center line before spinning out on a patch of loose gravel and ending up in a ditch.
Police recovered methamphetamine, oxycodone, several baggies and three scales from the vehicle, the complaint stated.
Anderson is incarcerated in lieu of $50,000 bail.
Also before Cercone, Karl J. Ginnery, 35, of Olean, N.Y., and Megan N. Sena, 23, of Roulette, waived a preliminary hearing for charges stemming from a traffic stop Sept. 3.
Ginnery is charged with three counts of possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance, felonies; one count of possession of an instrument of crime, a first-degree misdemeanor; and three counts each of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Sena is charged with three counts of DUI-controlled substance, two first-degree misdemeanors and a misdemeanor; and two summary charges.
According to the criminal complaint, a police officer pulled over a vehicle driven by Sena with Ginnery as a passenger.
After talking with them, officers searched the car and found the following items: two plastic containers and a plastic bag with methamphetamine in them, a plastic bag with three clonazepam pills, a plastic bag of marijuana, a buprenorphine/naloxone strip, a blunt, a Ziploc bag of cotton swabs, nine new syringes, straws with residue, a prescription bottle of 30 mirtazapine pills, a cellophane bag with 19 fluoxetine pills, two butane burners, $19 cash, a blue scale with white residue, a loaded syringe, assorted Ziploc bags and a glass pipe, according to court records.
The complaint indicated that Ginnery claimed ownership of all the items that were seized and told police that he asked Sena to drive him to meet a friend.
Bail for Ginnery is set for 10% of $20,000, and Sena is free on unsecured bail.
Courtney A. Lajudice, 29, Erie, waived a preliminary hearing before Cercone on charges of burglary, a first-degree felony; criminal trespass, a second-degree felony; terroristic threats, a first-degree misdemeanor; disorderly conduct, a third-degree misdemeanor; three counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor; and six counts of summary harassment.
According to the criminal complaint, on Oct. 1, Lajudice tried to kick in the front door of an occupied residence that she believed was an unoccupied home where someone was selling methamphetamine. When police arrived on scene, she pulled three used syringes from her pocket and handed them over to give them “a reason” to arrest her.
She became loud and aggressive when an officer handcuffed her, and a second officer helped get into the patrol car. At one point she told an officer she hoped he would die, the complaint stated.
Lajudice is incarcerated in lieu of $20,000 bail.
Shawn M. Cabisca, 29, of Bradford, pleaded guilty to charges of marijuana-small amount for personal use and a summary charge. The charges stem from allegations that on Sept. 28 Cabisca, who was under the influence of a controlled substance, went through a bank drive-thru and asked the teller to call 911, then reported to police that a woman was being held against her will, which was unfounded, the criminal complaint indicated. Cabisca will pay fines and costs.
