Michael T. Baldwin Reports

When Deputies Santigo and Worner pulled over a vehicle in the town of Ellicottville last week they made news by arresting 25 year-old Christian Brewster, a native of Friendship NY, as a fugitive from justice over an involuntary manslaughter charge in Bethlehem City Pennsylvania. Brewster and his companion, Nicole Stauffer, were both on the run after being charged in the death of their child from fentanyl poisoning on July 5th.

During the arrest the deputies discovered a cache of what appeared to be drugs for sale in small plastic baggies. The pair were both charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell.

Both Brewster and Stauffer have been arrigned in court and will likely face extradition back to Bethlehem City to face those very serious charges. Read more about that case:
