Medina woman arrested for drug charges after search

MEDINA – Law enforcement officers are continuing to investigate a shot fired in the village at about 11 a.m. on Friday. No one has been arrested for firing a shot at two people who fled on foot after an altercation near South Main and Oak Orchard streets, Medina police said.

The two people were not hit by the bullet, but it came within about a foot of a neighbor working in her garden.

Police were told the gunman came from Church Street and they executed a search warrant at 746 Church St., the home of Erika Poole, who already faces drug charges with a case pending in county court. (Her husband Brenton Poole was sentenced to five years in state prison on June 30 for a felony drug crime.)

After the search warrant at about 5 p.m. on Friday, Mrs. Poole was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, CPCS in the fifth degree, criminal nuisance in the first degree for knowingly allowing drug activity in her home, and criminal use of drug paraphernalia in the second degree, Medina police reported.

She was arraigned by Shelby Town Justice Dawn Keppler, who remanded Poole, 34, to jail on $100,000 bail.

Medina police are continuing the investigation with assistance from the State Police and Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force.
