Pittsfield man faces additional drug charges

A man who was arrested on drug charges a week ago faces new charges related to allegations that he carried several bags of marijuana into the Warren County Fair.

Tyler J. Seybert, 19, of Pittsfield, faces four counts of possession with intent to deliver and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to Warren County Sheriff’s deputies, Seybert was stopped for a bag check by security at the Fair at about 6:40 p.m Wednesday, Aug. 8.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, Seybert told security that he had marijuana in the bag when he was stopped. The deputy on duty at the Fair was called.

The deputy said he “observed a strong odor of fresh marijuana coming from his location.”

“As I approached Seybert, he stated that he had bags of marijuana in his backpack and it was for personal use,” the deputy wrote in the affidavit.

After searching the backpack, the deputy said it contained “four different plastic baggies containing a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, and a blue in color glass smoking device with what was believed to be marijuana residue. Also located was a small Mason jar containing 22 white oval shaped pills believed to be ibuprofen 600 mg.”

Those charges were filed on Wednesday and Seybert was arraigned before District Justice Todd Woodin.

Last week, Seybert was arrested and charged with selling black tar heroin to a confidential informant.
