SUBJECT STEALS MEDICATION FROM A GI RESIDENCE.
Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports detectives arrested Joel Morris, 33 of Grand Island, following reports of missing medication. On April 9, Deputies Was and Ginnane responded to a Grand Island residence about some medication and supplies missing from the dwelling. The Deputies observed signs of entry through a rear door and evidence was collected and the case was turned over to Detectives. From there, Detectives Ferrick and O’Hara developed further information which led them to a suspect and on April 27, they charged Morris with a felony count of endangering the welfare of a physically disabled person and misdemeanor counts of petit larceny and criminal possession of a controlled substance. The defendant was located at the Erie County Holding Center where he was already in custody on unrelated charges. Morris’ current bail is set at $1,000.00.
