Upstate New York Mayor Arrested For Throwing Crack Cocaine Out Window

The mayor of a small upstate New York village was arrested Tuesday for allegedly possessing crack cocaine. Massena Mayor Tim Currier was busted after a brief police pursuit through the village near the Canadian border at about 12:25 p.m. He was apparently targeted as part of an undercover investigation of drug sales and possession. As Currier was fleeing police, he is accused of chucking one gram of crack out a passenger window. He was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, and failure to comply with a police officer.
