Pair had more than 11 pounds
of pot, stolen wallets in car
|Damone A. Hennings|
Damone A. Hennings, 29, and Analyse J. Spencer, 21, were arraigned in Wyoming County Court last week.
Both are charged with first-degree criminal possession of cannabis, two counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and eight counts of third-degree unlawful possession of personal identification. Hennings also was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation.
Both entered not guilty pleas and Judge Michael Mohun ordered them back in court in April for argument of motions.
The case began when Wyoming County Sheriff’s Sgt. Colin Reagan stopped a car on Aug. 18 on Route 63 in Covington. Reagan said neither one had a valid driver’s license, leading to a search of the car.
Deputies found a plastic contractor bag in the trunk which allegedly contained 11 one-pound sealed packages of cannabis, a stolen wallet with multiple credit cards and another wallet with eight state unemployment benefit cards, all with different names on them.
An investigation revealed the cards were used to apply for benefits during the COVID relief period, deputies said. Spencer was released.
Hennings has multiple felony convictions in Georgia and was committed to jail but later posted $5,000 bail and was released.
