MIDDLEBURY — Three village of Wyoming residents face drug charges after a brief police pursuit that began on East Bethany Road Saturday, Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies said.

Deputies were on patrol when they attempted to stop a black 2014 Chrysler 300 for having no front plate.

The car stopped but then took off south. The car then pulled into a driveway.

As deputies approached the car they noticed “indicators of criminal activity,” Sgt. Colin Reagan and Deputy Renee Rudolph said.

The driver, Tammy M. Ace, 46, was found to have a suspended license and a search of the car revealed heroin, cocaine and drug paraphernalia.

Ace was charged with two counts of misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal use of drug paraphernalia, aggravated unlicensed operation, no front plate, failure to comply with a lawful order and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

Passengers Nicholas A. Pietrzykowski, 44, and Andrea L. Manley, 50, were charged with misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal use of drug paraphernalia.

All three are to appear Monday in Middlebury Town Court.
