Sheriff: Niagara Falls man found with nearly 400 pills

GRAND ISLAND, N.Y. (WIVB) — Erie County Sheriff’s deputies say the first discoveries they made about a driver on Whitehaven Rd. were that he had a suspended license and registration, but these were allegedly not the most severe offenses of the night.

While searching the vehicle of Jonathan Chamberlain, 23, during a traffic stop, deputies say they found 393 codeine pills in his possession. The pills weighed a total of 5.9 ounces, deputies say.

The Niagara Falls man was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, criminal controlled substance possession and operating a vehicle with a suspended registration.

After his arraignment, Chamberlain was released from the Erie County Holding Center. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
