Massena men charged after allegedly lying to troopers


MASSENA — State police on Wednesday charged Joseph D. Mitchell, 18, of 237 County Route 43, Lot 40, with misdemeanor second-degree obstruction of governmental administration and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.

Also charged was Andrew J. Northrup, 16, of 94 Stoughton St., with misdemeanor false personation.

Troopers allege that Mr. Northrup provided them with a false name and date of birth Tuesday when he, Mr. Mitchell and a third man were charged with unlawful possession of marijuana at Mr. Mitchell’s residence. Mr. Mitchell was charged with obstruction Wednesday because he allegedly knew Mr. Northrup provided the false information, troopers said.

Mr. Mitchell was arraigned in Louisville Town Court and sent to St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, on $250 bail.

Mr. Northrup, who had a warrant for his arrest, was arraigned in Stockholm Town Court and posted $100 cash bail on that warrant and was sent to St. Lawrence County jail on $250 bail on the false personation charge.

Troopers also allege that Mr. Northrup had 19 grams of marijuana stashed under his scrotum during his 12:30 a.m. processing Thursday. He additionally was charged with second-degree introduction of prison contraband and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Further arrests are pending, troopers said.
