Two Lisbon residents are in the county jail facing allegations that they possessed two illegal loaded revolvers, one with a defaced serial number, along with Suboxone and drug paraphernalia.

Brandon R. Graves, 21, of 224 Harper Road, Lisbon is charged with two felony counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor count of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, and no plate lamp.

Danielle S. Jensen, 17, same address is charged with one count of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, and possession of a hypodermic instrument.

Massena Village Police pulled a vehicle over at about 11:45 p.m. on Woodlawn Avenue driven by Graves because the plates lamps were out. Police said Officers Jayden Pernice and Tyler Condlin noted a spoon on the back seat in plain view that looked as if it had been used to cook heroin.

They got consent to search the vehicle and allegedly discovered the guns, a .38-caliber revolver with a defaced serial number and a .22-caliber revolver, in the trunk wrapped in a bundle of clothing, which in turn was wrapped in a deflated air mattress. Neither is licensed to carry them, police said. They also allegedly found a Suboxone patch in Graves’ wallet. Jensen allegedly had a hypodermic needle in her purse and two cotton balls that tested positive for heroin. Suboxone is prescribed to treat opiate addiction.

Each was arraigned in Massena Village Court before Justice Gerald Sharlow and remanded to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility, Canton. Graves is being held in lieu of $20,000 bail or $40,000 bond, Jensen in lieu of $5,000 bail or $10,000 bond.

The weapon possession charge is punishable by five to 15 years in state prison. Jensen may be eligible for youthful offender status, should a judge decide to grant it.
