Two people have been arrested and charged with several drug related crimes after police say the pair sold drugs on school grounds.
The three-month investigation into the sales and illegal possession of prescription medication resulted in the arrests of 25-year-old Matthew Goodwin, and 34-year-old Shauna Goodwin of Troupsburg.
Each face charges which include Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance on School Grounds, Fourth Degree Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance, and Fifth Degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance. All are felonies.
Both were arraigned in Hornell City Court and are behind bars in the Steuben County Jail, being held without bail.
According to Hornell City School District Superintendent Douglas Wyant, no drug transactions took place on the district’s campus or inside any campus buildings, but rather within 1,000 ft. of a school building. It’s that reason why the charge of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance on School Grounds was brought upon the pair.
The investigation was a joint effort between the Hornell Police Department, Corning Police Department, and Steuben County Sheriff’s Office.
