Two arrested in major Tompkins County drug bust

Two individuals were arrested in Tompkins County with a significant amount of marijuana being seized, along with more than $11,000 in cash on Thursday.

Around 8:04 pm the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of a suspicious vehicle parked on Stonehaven Drive in the Town of Lansing.

Upon arrival on Stonehaven Drive, deputies observed a black Honda parked on the road occupied by a white male who appeared to be sleeping. Deputies were able to wake the occupant who identified himself as Joshua H. Greenfield, 25, of Lansing.

As Greenfield was being interviewed by deputies a strong odor of marijuana was detected emanating from within the vehicle. Deputies observed a brown substance in the center console of the vehicle, which Greenfield admitted to being marijuana.

A further search of Greenfield’s vehicle revealed more of the substance suspected to be marijuana and several small packages containing what is suspected to be concentrated cannabis. A large amount of currency was also located inside the vehicle. Greenfield was subsequently taken into custody.

The investigation led deputies to Greenfield’s residence. Inside deputies located several more packages of the substance suspected to be concentrated cannabis, along with additional drugs and narcotics. Also located inside the residence was a large amount of currency and several items used for packaging drugs and narcotics.

The approximate street value of the drugs and narcotics seized by deputies from Greenfield’s vehicle and residence is estimated to be in excess of $20,000. In addition, over $11,000 in currency was seized.

Greenfield was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree, a Class C felony and criminal possession of marijuana in the third degree, a Class E felony.

He was arraigned in the Lansing Town Court before Judge Banfield and released on his own recognizance.

Also arrested was Christina M. Delvaglio, 25, of Lansing. Delvaglio resides with Greenfield and was present when deputies arrived at the residence. Delvaglio was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree.

Delvaglio was arraigned in the Lansing Town Court before Judge Banfield and released on her own recognizance.

The Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office reports that the investigation is ongoing. The New York State Police is assisting.
