UTICA — A Utica man is facing multiple counts of drug possession following a months-long investigation, according to law enforcement officials.
Police said the investigation began as a shooting case in early July, during which Timothy Pinkney, 33, was found driving a vehicle in which a large quantity of narcotics were found. Police said they investigated the drugs and a search warrant was executed in the city on Oct. 13, leading to Pinkney being taken into custody.
Pinkney is charged with two counts of felony third-degree possession of a controlled substance and one count each of fourth, fifth and seventh-degree possession of a controlled substance, police said.
He is scheduled to appear in Utica City Court, according to the law enforcers.
