Oneonta Drug Bust Nets Three Arrests

 

An Oneonta man and woman, and a Davenport man were arrested on multiple drug charges last week following a joint narcotics investigation between the Otsego County sheriff’s office, Otsego County probation department, Otsego County district attorney’s office special investigation unit and the Oneonta police.

The Otsego County sheriff’s office criminal investigation division received information last week that John Michael Nack, 44, of Oneonta, and Kristen Marie Manwarren, 23, of Oneonta, were staying in a Southside Oneonta hotel and allegedly selling heroin.

Investigators observed suspicious activity outside the hotel and the pair were seen leaving in a vehicle driven John Sanflippo, of Davenport. An investigation revealed that Sanflippo, who has a revoked and suspended driver’s license in New York State, was in possession of three packets of heroin that he purchased from Nack. He was also in possession of a hypodermic needle.

Arrested were:

  • Nack on multiple charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance.
  • Manwarren, on multiple charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and also possession of a hypodermic instrument.
  • Sanflippo on charges of third degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument.

Nack, who is presently on probation for previous criminal possession charge, and Manwarren were arraigned before Oneonta Town Judge Bruce A. Smith and were remanded to the Otsego County correctional facility on $25,000 bail returnable on December 20.

If convicted, Nack faces up to twelve years of incarceration due to past felony convictions, and additional three years for violation of probation.

If convicted, Manwarren faces up to nine years of incarceration.

Sanflippo was issued an appearance ticket returnable on December 4; he faces up to 1 year in the Otsego County jail.

District attorney John Muehl and chief assistant district attorney Michael Getman are prosecuting the cases.
