GENESEO — Livingston County Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty and Geneseo Police Chief Eric G. Osganian Friday reported the arrest of a North Carolina woman on felony charges.
Sandra N. Brown, 40, of South Port, North Carolina, was charged and arrested with multiple crimes following an incident on July 18 involving the menacing of a Geneseo Police Officer.
Dougherty said a Geneseo officer stopped a car with North Carolina plates on Wednesday. The sheriff reported a man identified as David Clyde Morgan of Wilmington, North Carolina, pointed a weapon. The officer fired in response before the man fled. A woman in the car, later identified as Sandra Brown, also ran but was caught.
Police cleared acres of fields and wooded areas with zero sightings of Morgan, who was last observed going into a cornfield. Sheriff Dougherty reported Friday morning there had been zero confirmed sightings of Morgan since the incident.
Federal records show Morgan pleaded guilty in 2002 to drug conspiracy. He was released from prison in March 2017.
Brown was charged with Menacing of a Police Officer (class D felony), Conspiracy in the 5th Degree (class A misdemeanor), Obstructing Governmental Administration in the 2nd Degree (class A misdemeanor), Menacing in the 2nd Degree (a class A misdemeanor), Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 4th Degree (class E felony) and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.
Brown was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention. The District Attorney’s Office was contacted for a bail recommendation due to the felony charges and they recommended bail at $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond.
Brown was later arraigned in the Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part (LC-CAP) held at the Livingston County Jail before Geneseo Village Justice Thomas Bushnell. The Judge did remand Brown to the custody of the Sheriff on the recommended bail.
The search for David Clyde Morgan, who may go by the name Uber, continues. If residents spot Morgan, call 911 immediately and do not approach him. If you have any information or tips, call the Sheriff’s Office at 585.243.7100 or 844.LCSO.TIP
