Three Arrested Following Altercation, Drugs And Firearm Recovered

Wagswoofs  –  Three men from Binghamton were recently arrested in the town of Kirkwood, New York, following a motor vehicle accident. The accident led to the discovery of several illegal items in their possession.

On December 22, a significant dispute occurred in the Town of Kirkwood, leading to the arrest of three individuals by the Broome County Sheriff’s Office. The arrested individuals include Guy Conklin (21 years old), Keith Palmer (19 years old), and Christopher Cady (27 years old).

At approximately 10:15 p.m., Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a trailer park on Route 11 following a reported hit-and-run accident. Upon their arrival, a loud verbal dispute erupted among more than a dozen individuals and swiftly escalated into a physical altercation. Additional patrols swiftly arrived and effectively intervened, successfully separating the parties involved.

Witnesses say that Conklin threatened to shoot several people during the first fight and then drove into a stopped car. He left the scene of the crime and came back with three men in his car. When the four people got there, they were held and patted down for safety reasons.

During the initial search, it was discovered that Palmer had an illegal 9mm “Ghost Gun” in his possession. This particular weapon, resembling a Glock 27, did not have any serial numbers or identifying marks. Additionally, he was found to be carrying multiple pills that were confirmed to be controlled substances after field testing.

Palmer was found to have an illegal 9mm “Ghost Gun” when he was first patted down. It looked like a Glock 27 and didn’t have any serial numbers or other markings that could be used to identify it. On top of that, he was caught with several pills that tested positive for controlled drugs.

K9 Raven conducted an additional search of the car and the individuals. The search uncovered drug paraphernalia and a pill that tested positive for a controlled substance in Cady’s possession. Interestingly, despite his driver’s license clearly identifying him as Christopher Cady, he repeatedly claimed his name was “Dominic Figerua” during the questioning by patrols. It was also discovered that Cady had an extraditable warrant from Pennsylvania for felony narcotics charges.
