Jenkins released after 45 days, indicted just days later

NORWICH – Due to court order, Nathaniel Jenkins, 31, of Binghamton was released from the Chenango County Correctional Facility on Jan. 19, 2016.

Days later, the grand jury in Chenango County indicted Jenkins, for two felony charges and three misdemeanor charges.

The grand jury indictment for the month of January charged Jenkins with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, a class B felony; criminally using drug paraphernalia, a class A misdemeanor; and two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in seventh degree, a class A misdemeanor.

These charges stem from a recent incident, where Jenkins was arrested along with five other individuals on Nov. 27, 2015, during a East Main Street trespass call-turned drug bust.

When the Norwich Police Department arrived on the scene, it was allegedly made known by noises heard that there were individuals in the upstairs floor of an unattached garage next to the East Main Street residence.

John E. Strong, 43, of 88 East Main St. in Norwich; Cheyenne M. Davenport, 19, of Norwich; Diana R. Essig, 29, of Lebanon, Penn., Lori M. Brooks, 35, of Unadilla, and Delta D. Burns, 40, of Norwich, were the five other individuals arrested from the residence that same night.
