News Update for Fri., Dec. 6, 2013


City barber arrested for allegedly selling more than haircuts; crack cocaine, too... 
A Jamestown barber who was allegedly "moonlighting" as a drug dealer... has been accused of selling "crack" cocaine out of his business... and, home.  City police say 42 year-old Gerald Slaughter was arrested during a raid at Gerald's Barbershop Thursday afternoon.  Police and State Police C-NET Team members also found a quantity of crack and cash in the business.  Two weapons were also allegedly found.  Police also say they found cocaine at Slaughter's home on South Main Street.  Police Chief Harry Snellings says the business allegedly wound up being a "front" for Slaughter's illegal dealings.  Snellings says they've seen what drug trafficking has done to some neighborhoods, and they don't want that filtering into the business areas.  This isn't the first time city police have found someone selling drugs out of their business.  A Pizza shop owner was arrested for allegedly doing the same thing within the past year.  Snellings adds Slaughter faces three Felony charges... including criminal possession of a controlled substanced.  He was also arraigned this afternoon on an illegal weapons charge for alleged possession of metal knuckles and a billy club.  Slaughter was sent to the county jail without bail.

Cold, snowy weather arrives just in time for Jamestown's Christmas Parade...

The snow and cold arrived somewhat abruptly after a couple of "balmy" Spring-like days.  But... it's just in time for Jamestown's annual Christmas Parade and Holiday Celebration.  The annual parade... being put on for the first time by the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation... kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on West Third Street.  Renaissance Corporation Event and Programming Associate Tiffani Conti says they're excited about the weather... and, the parade.  Conti says some streets are being closed off at this time... and, line-up begins at 5 p.m.  The parade is again being sponsored by The Resource Center, and Lutheran.  Conti says pre-parade activities begin at Tracy Plaza at 6 p.m. with the Jamestown Harmony Express Barbershoppers providing the entertainment.  They'll conclude at about 6:30 when the parade reaches Tracy Plaza.  Mayor Sam Teresi will light the city's official Christmas Tree... and, local veteran Keith Stam will perform the National Anthem -- then the parade will resume.  Conti says Santa will arrive at the end of the parade in a Western New York and Pennsylvania Railroad caboose.  A railroad engine will lead the parade.
