WARSAW — What began as a traffic stop last month ended with the recovery of handguns and drugs in Elmira, Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies said. Raymond L. Brady, 29, of Elmira was stopped June 20 on Route 20A for equipment violations, deputies said. He allegedly showed signs of impairment and was found to possess a concentrated cannabis vaporizer. Deputies said Brady then failed field sobriety tests. A search of his vehicle allegedly revealed a 9mm ammunition magazine fully loaded with 19 rounds and hidden in a black sock beneath the front seat.
Through further investigation, evidence recovery, and a roadside interview, probable cause was developed to obtain a search warrant for Brady’s residence. Elmira Police investigators executed a warrant and allegedly recovered a 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun inside a backpack, a .38 Special Charter Arms revolver inside a backpack, ammunition for both handguns, and 28 Oxycodone pills inside a clear plastic baggie.
Brady doesn’t have a handgun permit and lacked a prescription for the painkillers, deputies said. Brady was charged in Wyoming County with driving while ability impaired by drugs, consumption of cannabis in motor vehicle, obstructed rear plate, and illegal window tint. Elmira police said Tuesday that Brady has not been charged there but the investigation is continuing.
