A Bainbridge man is facing several charges, including drug charges, after the Chenango County Sheriff's Office says he failed to pull over.

The office says members attempted to stop Lance A. Madsen for traffic violations, but he sped off and drove in a reckless manner and failed to obey any traffic control devices.

Madsen was taken into custody after stopping in his own driveway. He was found to be in possession of more than 1.5 ounces of methamphetamine and paraphernalia that indicated the distribution and sale of drugs, along with several other controlled substances, according to the office.

Madsen was charged with the following:

  • Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 3rd degree
  • 4 counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th degree
  • 2 counts of Criminal Use of Drug Paraphernalia
  • Aggravated Unlicensed Operation in the 2nd degree
  • Reckless Driving
  • Several other New York State vehicle and traffic law violations

He was arraigned and remanded to the Chenango County Correctional Facility without bail.
