WARSAW — A Genesee Falls man who in October was found with an assault rifle and crystal methamphetamine when he was arrested for violating probation has been arrested again for dealing drugs.

Dustin K. Ellwood, 41, was charged Saturday with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, obstruction of governmental administration, criminal use of drug paraphernalia and criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument.

He was arraigned and committed to Wyoming County Jail without bail.

Ellwood was free with pending felony charges against him when he was arrested.

He has an extensive criminal history, with his latest arrest coming in October.

Ellwood had an outstanding warrant for violating probation when he was taken into custody by State Police Violent Gang Narcotics Enforcement Team, the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Warsaw-based troopers and Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies in late October.

He was found with a 9-millimeter assault rifle, crystal methamphetamine and other drug paraphernalia.

He was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of controlled substance, second-degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia, criminal possession of a weapon and felony violation of probation.

Ellwood had served four years in Franklin Correctional Facility after being convicted in 2009 of third-degree burglary in Allegany County, according to state records.
