Man jailed for bail jumping


WARSAW — A Batavia man arrested twice last year for dealing drugs was jailed for bail jumping, Wyoming County sheriff’s investigators said.

Johnathan M. Falk, 22, was arrested last week on charges that he failed to appear in town of Warsaw Court and Wyoming County Court to answer to numerous drug charges.

Falk was charged with third-degree bail jumping and committed to Wyoming County Jail without bail.

Falk had two outstanding warrants against him. He was arrested in January 2020 for petit larceny in Warsaw and was released with an appearance ticket.

That same month he was arrested again, this time charged with possessing and selling controlled substances, including on school grounds.

Investigators said the charges against Falk did not qualify him for bail and he was released.

He was arrested again in June, this time on more serious charges of second-degree criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance. He again was released from custody, police said.

A Wyoming County grand jury indicted Falk in August but he never appeared for arraignment and warrants were issued.

He was located Feb. 17, with assistance from Genesee County Sheriff’s Department.
