ROCHESTER, N.Y (STL.News) U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced that Jaron Flagg, 31, of Syracuse, NY, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with being a felon in possession of a firearm and possessing marijuana and cocaine.  The charges carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean Eldridge, who is handling the case, stated that according to the complaint, on January 10, 2021, a New York State Trooper observed the defendant driving 97 miles per hour on the New York State Thruway in Wheatland, NY.  The trooper initiated a traffic stop, during which he smelled marijuana and learned that Flagg did not have a valid driver’s license.  The defendant was arrested, and a search of his vehicle recovered quantities of cocaine, marijuana, and a loaded 9mm handgun, which had been reported as stolen.  Flagg has two prior felony convictions and is legally prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition.

The defendant made an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark W. Pedersen and was detained.
