Heroin Charge In Westhampton Arrest On Saturday

Nov 17, 2014 3:29 PM

A 26-year-old woman was charged with heroin possession after police found her sitting inside a car that was blocking an intersection in Westhampton on Saturday morning.

At 9:40 a.m., Southampton Town Police officers saw that William Parson, 33, of Sound Beach and Heather McCormack of Mastic Beach were sitting inside Mr. Parson’s car, which was blocking the intersection of John Way and Mill Road.

Ms. McCormack had heroin in her possession, police said, and was arrested and charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.

Police said Mr. Parson, who had his license revoked previously for an alcohol-related offense, was charged with second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor.

Ms. McCormack and Mr. Parson were arraigned later that morning in Southampton Town Justice Court and released on $100 bail. Both are scheduled to return to court on Wednesday, December 10, according to Sergeant Andrew Ficurilli.

Where to? Back to Sound Beach and Mastic Beach? Harden the border between Brookhaven Town and the East End?

Nice idea, but how do you plan to implement it?

A strategy on what ? First, the incident that is mentioned in the article occurred outside the Village of WHB. Second, I believe if you look back in Chief Deans history he brought the East End drug Task force into the Village when he took over and they did make several arrests in the village and finally Ex Chief Dean has been retired for five months now, let it go. On the other hand the new Mayor has yet to do anything with the police dept. in five months or anything else in five months accept ...more

And if the Mayor reads this remember Hollywood and beachbme are bucking for the old guard- Gonce. Lets continue to keep Teller and Dean out of the influence by not hiring there recommendations. read there prior comments for the history.

"Lt Gonce has performed admirably in running the department, and has provided stability during this time for law enforcement in village." Mayor Moore was quoted as saying in this paper back on Oct 29, sounds like he is doing a good job according to your Mayor, Realistic. So I guess you will be completely disappointed if he were made Chief by your Mayor, then what ?

Read the comments below on known drug drop offs- especially the one at the WHB gas station and advise why your guy is not doing anything about that?
By realistic (472), westhampton on Nov 18, 14 7:32 AM
First that is someone's opinion that that is a know drop off otherwise why aren't they going to the police with the information with names, license plate numbers everybody know that's how police work is done through informants and information. Second maybe if your mayor hired someone to be chief the new policies and ideas and needs of the police dept could be met. Right now nothing is being accomplished accept for the stability being provided by Lt Gonce, give him the authority or someone and I'm ...more

I have come to the conclusion that, hard as it may be, we ought to legalize some of the less harmful drugs and set up the distribution as the liquor stores are and charge taxes on the sales. That is what our grand dads did after the failed prohibition of the 1920's.
By the way, one of the influential women who worked on that solution was Mrs. Pauline Sabin of Southampton Society back in the day..

Ok Possibly. But I did see two of WHB Police cars hanging out across the street from the Car wash this morning "building a case" on my way into town and then again a half hour later on my way out of town- same place. Seems like Gonce should be aware his officers are not "patrolling" the streets. Actually as I think about it I see that senerio more times then I can recall. Great management of the staff. Lets get this guy on board so he can make changes.
