FULTON, NY â€“ During the evening hours of Thursday July 15, the Fulton Police Department utilized two officers to participate in its Quality of Life Patrol.
The QLP is a special detail in which two officers patrol in plain clothes using an unmarked car targeting offenses that lower the quality of life in residential neighborhoods.
This can be any criminal offense but emphasis is placed on disturbances, fights, loud noise complaints and open alcohol container offenses.
During Thursdayâ€™s QLP officers responded to a report of an ATV being driven on a city street, it was gone on the officersâ€™ arrival.
Later, a man was arrested for an open container violation in which he was witnessed by officers walking in the street at the intersection of West Second Street South and Beech Street with an open beer can.
While officers were completing the arrest paperwork of that subject, one of the officers recognized a man in the area as being wanted by Fulton Police on multiple warrants.
The man, Casey Trail, 21, of Seneca Street, Fulton, was wanted on two bench warrants for failing to appear in court to answer to the charges of third-degree criminal mischief and fourth-degree criminal mischief.
He was also wanted on an arrest warrant for first-degree falsifying business records, an E felony and petit larceny, an A misdemeanor.
There was also an open investigation involving Trail in which he was arrested for: second-degree criminal sale of marihuana, a D felony; unlawfully dealing with a child, an A misdemeanor and endangering the welfare of a child, an A misdemeanor.
Trail was arraigned in Fulton City Court on July 16 and sent to Oswego County Jail with no bail.
The Quality of Life Patrol has been a successful detail that has been utilized by Fulton Police for approximately 10 years.
Patrols will continue through the summer at various dates and times.
