COUNTY COURT WARRANTS - MASSENA - Two Massena men were picked up on county court warrants Tuesday after they allegedly violated the conditions of their releases under probation supervision by testing positive for drug use.
Shane W. Caskinette, 33, of 26 Orchard Road, Massena, was taken into custody at 2:59 p.m. and transported to Canton for an appearance in St. Lawrence County Court.
Caskinette had been indicted in March for one count of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. During processing on the March warrant, police had said Caskinette was found to be in possession of a small quantity of marijuana and a container with codeine pills. He was additionally charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and an unlawful possession of marijuana violation.
Brian W. Doman-Thomas, 19, of 35 Parker Ave., Massena, was taken into custody at 5:25 p.m. He was transported to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility pending an appearance in county court.
Domanand a co-defendant, Cody J. Anderson of 175 Mckinley Ave. had each been charged in February 2011 with multiple felony counts of criminal mischief after village police received 35 complaints from Massena residents who had windows shot out of their vehicles.Most of the estimates for repairs to the damage are in the $300 to $500 range. Weve only had two over the $1,000 mark, and we have only had two that came in less than $250, the threshold for a felony charge, he noted.
Police said early in the investigation officers spotted bbs in tail lamps and received similar reports from local repair shops.
Police said the investigation moved forward when a police department employee spotted a discarded bb long gun package when he was walking on Main Street.
Police were able to trace the purchase of a bb gun and 2,400 bbs at 3 a.m. Friday from Walmart. A review of the stores surveillance video led to the arrest of the two teenagers Friday evening.
Anderson, in a statement he provided police, said he drove his truck around the village, while Doman fired shots from his trucks window.
