Seneca leaders ban six people from territory
Leaders from the Seneca Nation have voted to ban six individuals from sovereign territory for suspected drug dealing.
Members of the Seneca Nation Council took what they described as a “strong stance” against drug dealing on Seneca Nation land by approving “banishments” of all six individuals.
A spokesman said Seneca Nation Marshals found four of the individuals in a vehicle carrying drugs and drug paraphernalia during a vehicle check on the Cattaraugus Territory last week. According to the release, the four individuals were detained until New York State Police arrived on scene. Two other individuals were included in the ban as a result of previous stops and suspected drug activity, the spokesman said.
