The Cobleskill Police Department said Monday that the following individuals were arrested between Feb. 15 and 19 and charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance: Rossiter J. Lighthall III, 21, of Warnerville; Joshua B. Lindsay, 21, of Cobleskill; Jacob S. Brown, 22, of Sharon Springs; and Jacob Olivieri-McKersie, 21, of Warnerville.
