Rural Drug Sales:
Another set of drug charges
for oft-arrested man on parole
Some people don’t know when to stop. A Cattaraugus County man who was arrested four times in 2018 and 2019 for possessing an array of drugs and sentenced in Wyoming County to a six-year prison term has been arrested again. 

Anthony Krepps, 40, was a passenger in a car stopped for traffic violations Wednesday morning on Bagdad Road in Collins. Erie County sheriff’s deputies found crystal methamphetamine, crack cocaine, LSD and Suboxone in the car, along with brass knuckles, a double-sided dagger, drug pipes and other paraphernalia. Deputies also seized $5,254 in cash. 

Krepps, along with a woman believed to be his wife, Crystal Krepps, and the driver, Brian McGonagle, 28, of Cherry Creek, all were charged. The Krepps were charged with two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, fourth-degree possession, fifth-degree possession, misdemeanor possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

McGonagle faces the same charges, along with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, felonies because he is a convicted felon. 

For Anthony Krepps, it was another in a long list of arrests during the past three years, including one in Arcade, Wyoming County, that earned him a six-year prison term. Krepps was arrested Dec. 1, 2018 after a traffic stop in Arcade. He had cocaine, crystal meth and marijuana. Four months later he was charged in Olean and found with prescription drugs and pot and in September 2019 was charged in Machias for possession of cocaine, meth and buprenorphine.

Krepps was sentenced in December 2019 to six years, but was allowed to serve at Willard Drug Treatment. He was released, but returned to prison in March to serve another three months. He was released to parole and is on parole until November 2025. If convicted of the latest charges, he could be returned to prison to serve the remainder of the six-year term, along with any other sentence imposed on the new charges upon conviction.
