Troop A Commander

On March 3rd, 2012, Officer ERIC KRAFT approached a vehicle on Curtis Street in the City of Jamestown, and just before speaking to the male driver, later identified as ADAM HALE, 29, of Jamestown, the vehcile sped away. Officer KRAFT lost sight of the vehicle but gave the plate number and a description to Chautauqua County dispatch who then notified the other road patrols. Minutes later, the suspect vehicle was located on North Work Street in Falconer by Trooper JOSEPH KRYWALSKI and pulled over. Trooper KRYWALSKI approached the vehicle and observed a female driver, MALARY STENSTROM, 20, of Jamestown, and intoxicated passenger, HALE. Officer KRAFT responded to the scene and identified HALE as the driver that drove away from him and placed him under arrest for DWI after HALE failed several field sobriety tests. HALE was then transported to the Jamestown Police Department for DWI processing. Trooper KRYWALSKI informed STENSTROM that she was under arrest for Obstructing Governmental Administration, as she had obviously switched seats with HALE in an attempt to interfere with Officer KRAFT’s DWI investigation, and STENSTROM became unruly. STENSTROM had to be physically restrained by Trooper KRYWALSKI and Officer MOORE (JPD) in order to secure her in handcuffs. While conducting an inventory of the suspect vehicle, Trooper KRYWALSKI located the following items: a loaded .22 caliber revolver, a tin containing an oxycodone pill and two dronabinol pills, and a scale containing a white powder residue. Oxycodone and dronabinol are both controlled substances, of which neither HALE nor STENSTROM have a prescription. After the DWI processing, HALE and STENSTROM were transported to SP Jamestown and charged with the following: Criminal Possession of a Weapon 2nd Degree (felony), two counts each of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th Degree, Criminally Using Drug Paraphernalia 2nd Degree, Possession of a Controlled Substance in a non-original container, and STENSTROM was additionally charged with Obstructing Governmental Administration 2nd Degree and Resisting Arrest. After processing, both suspects were arraigned in the Town of Ellicott Court and remanded to the Chautauqua County Jail with no bail.
