Two Binghamton men charged after police seize loaded gun and drugs

Members of the Special Investigations Unit task force confiscated a handgun and more than six ounces of methamphetamine when they searched a residence in Binghamton.

Authorities say two men were arrested in the anti-drug raid on the south side of the city.

The suspects are Kenneth Everling, 36, and Jamel Nichols, 33. The men were arrested after police executed a narcotics search warrant on Thursday at a building at 322 Conklin Avenue.

Everling was charged with four counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and one count of criminal possession of a weapon. He was also charged with two counts of criminal use of drug paraphernalia.

Nichols was charged with two misdemeanor counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Investigators say they seized a loaded Smith and Wesson 9mm handgun. They say they also found methamphetamine, alprazolam pills, amphetamine pills and sublingual suboxone films. Medicine packaging materials were also confiscated during the raid.

Everling was arraigned in Binghamton City Court and sent to Broome County Jail. Nichols was released on an appearance ticket.

The arrests were made by the Broome County Special Investigations Unit Task Force.

According to a press release, assistance was provided by the Southern Tier Crime Analysis Center and the Binghamton Police Department’s Community Response Team.
