CAYUTA, N.Y. (WETM) – Two people were arrested after a traffic stop on State Route 13 in the Town of Cayuta.

According to the Schuyler County Sheriff’s office, a deputy conducted a traffic stop due to a traffic law violation and found that the driver, Brent Gillie Jr. of Freeville, was found to have a suspended driver’s license.
