Ogdensburg man indicted on drug possession


CANTON — A St. Lawrence County grand jury indicted an Ogdensburg man Friday on six counts of felony drug possession.

Wade Creighton, 32, of 222 Franklin St., Apt. 2, is charged with second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, three counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and two counts of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, all felonies.

He was also charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor.

It is alleged that on Dec. 15, in the city, Mr. Creighton was in possession of 4-plus ounces of cocaine, an unspecified amount of heroin, MDMA, also known as Ecstasy or Molly, Suboxone and two-plus ounces of marijuana, all with the intent to sell.

Ogdensburg City Police Detective Daniel Mousaw said that it was 9 p.m. when police were asked to accompany a state parole officer to the apartment and stand by while the parole officer conducted a house check. The visit led to the discovery of the drugs and cash totaling approximately $30,000, as well as drug-packaging materials, police said at the time of the arrest.

In other grand jury action Friday:

Joseph A. Peterkin, 32, of Brooklyn, is charged with two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, all felonies.

It is alleged that Mr. Peterkin was in possession of and sold cocaine in Ogdensburg on March 19 and April 30 to a confidential informant.

Mr. Peterkin was previously arraigned on the same charges, but they were dismissed on Oct. 7 when St. Lawrence County Judge Jerome J. Richards determined that the testimony to a grand jury by Ogdensburg Police Narcotics Enforcement Detective Daniel C. Mousaw provided information about an uncharged crime, which might have swayed the jury to indict Mr. Peterkin.

Tomah Goodale, 24, of Philadelphia, is charged with second-degree criminal mischief, a felony.

It is alleged that on Sept. 28, in the village of Gouverneur, Mr. Goodale smashed the driver-side front and rear windows, as well as the windshield, of a 2008 Nissan Frontier belonging to Bart Kidwell, causing damages exceeding $1,500.
