David Pusey Jr., 33, of 729 Snow Road was indicted in county court for third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

The charges stem from an investigation of an April 12 incident that began in Wellsville. A Wellsville police officer tried to pull Pusey over on Trapping Brook Road when Pusey sped away on a motorcycle, pursued by the officer. The high-speed chase ended when the motorcycle broke down on county Road 22A in Independence. Pusey allegedly had drugs in his possession.

Assistant District Attorney Michael Finn noted Pusey consented to a search of his residence.

Officers found a suspected methamphetamine box lab and .45-caliber pistol, 12-gauge shotgun and other long guns.

As a predicate felon — someone convicted of a felony who has a prior felony convicted in the previous 10 years — it was illegal for him to possess handguns.
