MASSENA -- Four people were charged with various drug felonies on Friday night after village police and county drug task force members executed a search warrant at a South Grasse River Road residence.

Police say they seized heroin, crack cocaine, an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency and a stun gun.

Timothy D. Alguire Jr., 34, of 95 South Grasse River Rd. is charged with third-degree criminal sale and possession of a controlled substance and first-degree criminal nuisance, all felonies. The controlled substance charges stem from previous instances where police said Alguire sold narcotics in the village of Massena. The nuisance charge is for allowing drug activity to occur at his residence.

Alguire Jr. was arraigned in Massena Village Court and sent to the St. Lawrence Correctional Facility on $2,500 bail.

Shawn W. Woodbury, a.k.a. "Shaft," of 10825 Liverpool St., Jamaica, Queens is charged with three counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and one count of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Police said Woodbury was allegedly in possession of two grams of heroin and 20 grams of crack cocaine, both of which he intended to sell. He also allegedly had a stun gun.

He was arraigned in village court and sent to the county lock-up without bail, due to prior felony convictions.

Cindy M. Alguire, 43, of 95 South Grasse River Rd. is charged with one count of first-degree criminal nuisance. She was arraigned in Massena Village Court and released under supervision of the county Probation Department.

Police charged a fourth person at the residence on an unrelated outstanding bench warrant from Massena Village Court.

Robert A. Gonyou of 2 Ripley St. was arrested for missing a May 1 appearance on charges of unlawful imprisonment, fourth-degree criminal mischief and second-degree harassment, police said. Those charges stemmed from a domestic dispute, according to police.

Gonyou was arraigned in Massena Village Court and sent to the county jail in lieu of $250 bail.

Alguire Jr. has been arrested and charged stemming from two recent drug-related incidents.

In late March, he was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony for allegedly stealing an assault rifle from his father. Police said they recovered it from a Liberty Avenue residence where they allegedly also found a felony quantity of cocaine and 6 oz. of marijuana.

In October, Alguire Jr. was charged with felony cocaine possession after police allegedly found 1 gram of the drug in his car during a traffic stop.
