  • A parolee and his passenger were arrested after a traffic stop Friday in Bath, and police seized a variety of drugs from their vehicle, authorities said Tuesday.
    Parolee Andrew S. Fisher was taken into custody after fleeing the stop on foot, and his passenger, Mary Kate Kennedy, was arrested after police found marijuana, cocaine, psychedelic mushrooms, pills and drug paraphernalia in the vehicle, authorities said.
    According to police, Fisher was driving on State Route 53 when a Steuben County Sheriff’s deputy stopped his vehicle for a traffic violation. During the stop, the deputy suspected Fisher had provided a false name, and the deputy requested a backup unit to assist.
    When a state trooper arrived on scene, Fisher fled the stop on foot, police said. Fisher ran through several backyards but was taken into custody nearby, police said.
    After Fisher was arrested, police searched his vehicle and found the drugs and took Kennedy into custody.
    Fisher, 26, of Hornell, was charged with failing to signal, parking on pavement, unlicensed operation, false personation and second-degree obstructing governmental administration. Also, he was wanted on a parole violation. He served about a year a prison for assault.
    Kennedy, 19, of Howard, was charged with second-degree obstructing governmental administration, second-degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and fifth-degree criminal possession of marijuana.
    Both Fisher and Kennedy were jailed on $1,000 cash bail.
