PENN YAN - An investigation into drug sales in Yates County has resulted in the arrest of four people.

Following grand jury indictments, county sheriff’s deputies and investigators arrested the following Wednesday:

Justin S. Woodruff, 22, of 1584 Outlet Road, Penn Yan, on two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance;

Amanda N. Fultz, 24, of 1584 Outlet Road, on three counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and three counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance;

Trevor J. Spoor, 21, of 122 E. Main St., Penn Yan, on two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Also Wednesday, Penn Yan police arrested Tyler D. Spoor, 20, of 122 E. Main St., and charged him with two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

The arrests are the result of a joint investigation between county and village police investigators, who said they have been sharing information with the Rochester Police Department.

Local police investigators said in recent months, they determined some Yates County residents had been going to Rochester to buy heroin and bringing it back to Yates County to sell it in the community.

Penn Yan police said Tyler Spoor is accused of selling the drug in the village last fall.

He was arraigned Friday in Yates County Court and taken to the county jail on $5,000 cash bail.

Woodruff and Trevor Spoor were arraigned in county court and taken to the county jail without bail. Fultz, who was in jail on other charges, was arraigned on the drug counts and taken back to jail without bail.

Fultz recently was charged by county and village police with grand larceny and scheme to defraud.

She is accused of writing numerous bad checks to businesses in the county.

Her sister, Amber K. Fultz, 23, of 1584 Outlet Road, faces similar charges.

County and village police said their investigation continues, and more arrests are expected.
