Poison gas attacks have resumed here along Pleasant Avenue. (Yes, it’s the Joyce Barton gang.) Rather than clog the blog with frequent updates, we’ve created a poisonings log page. It’s accessible from the top right of our home page.
We set out to establish that the Barton’s aged truck, used to gas us with volatilized pesticides, was modified to serve as a poisoning platform. Linda Kaidan performed this complex investigation. (Video below.)
Kaidan approached the Bartons’ truck–parked across the street from us in their driveway, and photographed it from the public sidewalk in front of their home. This was 3 months after she was beaten by the Barton gang’s Shianne Hill for standing on the same spot. Here is a Kaidan’s report:
Linda Kaidan’s Report of Poison Spraying by the Numbers
After feeling the searing burn of chemicals on my face for too many mornings, on 9/16/17, I finally took the initiative to look under the Barton truck parked across the street at their 333 Pleasant Avenue house. Here’s what I found.
On the driver’s side a long cylinder with a 50% cut out on the 180 degrees facing the street is apparent.
This cylinder may be an integral part of a spraying mechanism.
A electrical connection dangles from the rear.
On the driver’s side a similar cylinder with intact electrical connection can be seen.
Pesticide is typically dispensed by electrically volatizing it into a fine mist, rapidly dispensed under pressure in high volume over a wide area. The device is called a fogger.
The Barton gang’s truck appears to support both right, left and rear dispensing of a volatilized chemical.
There was no pesticide tank the day the photo was taken. The Bartons, apparently fearing increased official scrutiny, have had allies spraying us recently. But the necessary apparatus is still on the truck. I (Berry) recently watched as Joyce Barton sat in the truck cab, controlling the mechanism with a hand unit as she parked in front of our house. An invisible blast of pesticide mist hit the front of our house and me.
There are many of these vehicles in Herkimer. They been known to convoy past our house, spraying. Herkimer’s criminals dislike our cameras and coverage of their activities.
Stephen Ames Berry
The more things change, the more they remain the same-Herkimer’s poisonous Bartons spray on. Despite the arrest of one gang member and the disappearance of another, the Joyce Baton gang continues spraying our home and us with odorless pesticides. This is the 19th month of poison gas attacks on us here in Herkimer.
The Barton gang poison gassers seem mostly down to Joyce Barton and household members. Still using the same old truck, several times a day they send a burst of volatilized pesticide down our driveway from a concealed fogger somewhere on their spraymobile. (The truck apparently enjoys diplomatic immunity.)
If you don’t believe me, come stand beside outside me for a driveby. Or in an open window. Morning’s their preferred time, though the sight of us outside at any time often inspires a quick burst. Sometimes they fire down our 332 Pleasant Avenue neighbors’ driveway. Sometimes the gas gets into our 328 neighbors’ house and yard, sometimes it drifts into the street.
If there’s a will to stop this murderous conduct, a way will be found. Until then, the war of attrition between Herkimer’s legacy criminals and its first climate change migrants grinds on.
There seem to be only a few gassing vehicles now in use. The principal vehicle is Douglas Barton’s old truck, in the driveway across the street from us at the Bartons’ 330 Pleasant Avenue. (Barton himself is gone, his place taken by a younger clone.) That truck is no stranger to the law.
Joyce Barton’s shirt’s a fitting choice for Herkimer’s arch poisoner and drug dealer. The pesticide being directed from beneath all vehicles is more toxic than many previously used. The foggers used to volatilize and dispense the pesticide are apparently easily moved to other vehicles.
Herkimer Poison Gassers Using GPS Tracking?
In the past month, our murderous band of Herkimer neighbors have developed an uncanny ability to accurately predict when we’ll be arriving home. Pulling into our driveway, we’re often greeted with a fresh toxic cloud of odorless pesticide. It disperses within a few moments, indicating it was just applied. The drive time from our usual Herkimer haunts is only a few minutes. Knowing our location and travel route allows a reduced number of poisoners to apply fresh pesticide to our driveway without resorting to the high-volume, high visible driveby poison gassings which seems to have taken a lot of them off of the road.
The toxin in our driveway is often augmented by a custom poison spraying directed into our backs from the street as we unload groceries. Volatilized pesticide is invisibly released under pressure from a fogger beneath a vehicle. Doug Barton’s old truck is associated with quite a few but all not blasts of poison as it innocently backs out of the Barton driveway.
Herkimer Poisoners Using New Highly Caustic Chemical
The poison used on us in the past month is caustic and highly toxic It abrades the skin, and attacks the central nervous system and the lungs. Multiple showers are needed to detox Some clothing will clean up after repeated washings. If not, they must be discarded, or will serve to dispense more poison in the body.
Rather than ripping our car apart looking for a GPS tracker, then doing it again when another one’s secreted, we often wear Tyvek. Yard work safety calls for Tyvek, as does protection from opportunistic driveby poisonings. (The neighborhood abounds in spotters, who blame us for their loss of drug and child trafficking income, and of course, for “getting Shianne arrested.” )
For prolonged outdoor exposure on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue, a military grade P-100 gas mask is standard. Here I am in full chemical warfare regalia, trimming a tree. Unprotected, this activity would subject me to a driveby gas attack, usually from the Barton’s truck.
Biohazard suits and the masks should do us for the duration, if Joyce Barton doesn’t source some Sarin nerve gas from Syria. Our yards though, are hopelessly poisoned, as are those of many of our neighbors.
Last night we were subjected to a massive series of poison gas attacks lasting from 2100—0436 hrs. They appear to have either come from both the rear of 334 Pleasant Avenue, and from vehicles associated with that address. 334 Pleasant Avenue houses the remnants of Herkimer’s Stanley Sykes gang, officially tenanted by Carrie Ann Bass. This is one of the largest poison gas attacks we’ve endured in Herkimer in the past 15 months.
Herkimer Driveby 7 hour poison gas attack
The front and sides of our house at 330 Pleasant Ave were gassed with chemicals have the attributes of odorless pyretherin pesticides, probably dispensed from foggers attached to the bottom of the passing vehicles. 26 vehicles passed our house from 2100-2211. We recognized some of the vehicles as being associated with previous drive-by gassings, with some coming from the driveway of 334 Pleasant Avenue. A small white car with a sun roof was the most prominent. Many vehicles made multiple passes of our house from 2100 – 2211, convoying like battleships. I’ve posted the times below.
It would take me several days to process the footage of the vehicles. Hoping that the law enforcement surveillance drones seen last night recorded them, I’ve listed the times of the
7 hour poison gas attack from rear of Herkimer’s 334 Pleasant Avenue
From 2151 – 0436, overlapping waves of poison gas were dispensed on our back yard and rear window from 334 Pleasant Avenue using one or more hand foggers or large crop treatment equipment. The parking lot area adjacent ot 334 is not visible to our cameras at night.
The almost continuous stream of poison gas was directed at our backyard, from the direction of 334 Pleasant rear. Given the volume of poison dispensed, and the height it reached on out house, it had to have spread to adjacent properties in the direction of King Street. 328 and 326 Pleasant Avenue, which have small children who play outside.
Our backyard is brightly lit, so our cameras there wouldn’t have captured the gas as it billowed out. It can only be seen in infrared. However, so much gas was dispensed that the prevailing south wind carried it between 330 and 332 Pleasant Avenue and into Pleasant Avenue. That area is not lighted, and our cameras recorded the waves of poison gas as it rolled past.
Time of Vehicles Passing 330 Pleasant Avenue 2100-2211, 5.29.18
Herkimer gas attacks have resumed here on Pleasant Avenue and are blossoming with Spring. Having failed to drive us from our house and been only moderately successful in poisoning us in our beds over the last year, our murderous band of neighbors are trying to deny us our backyard.
When we’re out back for more than a few minutes, a poisonous insecticide rolls in. It’s odorless, colorless, its familiar symptoms those of pyrethrim: tongue and lip numbness, drooling, lethargy, itching, short term memory loss, muscle tremors, respiratory problems. The gas quickly disperses, but the symptoms linger for hours. It comes from the direction of King Street.
Assuming its misted from the west of our yard by an easily-concealed handfogger, the pesticide is dispensed toward us from within the circle on the map. The smaller, easily hidden pesticide foggers have a coverage area of 5,000 square feet, according to the handfogger directions. We’re easily in range from any part of that red circle.
Surrounded by Sykes Gang and A Spreading Plague of Vacant Houses
The gas creeps in when we’re out of line of sight of the neighboring yards. This requires spotters–that would be the Sykes gang, long comfortably nested in landlord Jay Smith properties on the other side of us. (See map.) The two houses to S. Sykes left and the one to his right are vacant. (The guys in 332 Pleasant work during the day.) Indeed, over time there’s been a creeping plague of vacant houses overlooking or near the Sykes gang’s domain. This is symptomatic of a ruthless and depraved criminal enterprise expanding it’s turf. Were the houses’ occupants gassed, or did they just think it healthier to move?
Looking at the gassing map (below), the immediate reason for poisoning us is obvious: our house and its cameras look right down the throat of the Stanley Sykes gang’s empire of dirt surrounding the parking lot. (They frequently complain they’ve paid for the right to traffic there and that we need to be gone and they’ll soon see us on our way.)
March 2018 Gassing Attacks
3/30/18 1200 hrs. Warm day. Gassed in backyard from the direction of King Street as we stood on backstairs. Only direction not within sight or fully fully covered by cameras.
3/11/18 Installing light on back steps when yard misted with pyrethrim. Usual symptoms. Attack appeared to come from backyard several houses down Pleasant Avenue from the King Street side, given prevailing wind and that I was watching immediately adjacent houses and yards on Pleasant and Eureka Avenues as worked.
Herkimer Post views surge driven by YouTube and Facebook

Curtis Cool Continues to Rule
9,100 Views, 27,000 Minutes Watchtime
Herkimer’s iconic Curtis Cool’s antics are responsible for about 50% of all our Herkimer crime video views. Assaults and trafficking by the Stanley Sykes gang, Joyce Barton and Herkimer’s Historic Crack House Keeper account for most of the rest. (The Sykes’ gang is trending nicely. ) With Facebook News now taking an interest in our blog, we hope the influx of new readers and viewers will continue to send the Herkimer Post soaring as we offer fresh, newsworthy Herkimer crime insights.
Herkimer Grows Camera Shy
There’s been a concerted effort by the Herkimer Police and Herkimer’s -legacy criminals to avoid creating arrest-worthy, video-worthy incidents. But only when the Sykes’s and the Bartons and their trafficking are gone from Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue will the street become fully habitable again and real estate salable.
The waves of poison gas attacks of last year have settled into a war of attrition, with snipers surrounding us; executing pesticide attacks from hand foggers whenever we venture out. The gas of course rolls on down the street over law abiding people and pets.
Note to prospective Pleasant Avenue real estate sellers and their agents:
Taking a property off of the market and then renting it to criminals who spray poisons is not a winning sales strategy.
A ‘Speak no evil’ philosophy empowered this criminal stronghold. While Justice Brandeis has given effective advice – “Sunlight is the best disinfectant”. As Herkimer Post views surge, we provide this sunlight.
Herkimer gassing of 2/27/18 – I was in my backyard and then entered my home experiencing itchiness, burning skin sensations and nausea. I went out the front door (position 1) and observed a small black sedan backing out of a driveway near 324 Pleasant Ave (position 2). This vehicle headed west towards PK’s pub. It parked on the north side roughly at position labelled 3 on the above map. A person exited the vehicle and ran briskly towards the home located near #3. At the same time there was a small black sedan parked near #4 on the above map. The license number of one of these vehicles (obtained 2 minutes later after one vehicle had departed) was FSE-9699.
I was suspicious of the vehicle backing out from the driveway labeled 2 because it drove such a short distance. Why not walk a distance of several houses rather than drive? And if the purpose was to park close to PK’s pub, why not turn around in one of the several vacant driveways that were closer to the pub?
The prevailing wind at this time was from the west. I believe that poison pesticide sprayed from position #2 resulted in the symptoms that I experienced. These symptoms are consistent with Deltmethrin, a popular pyrethroid insecticide manufactured in Canada.
The first Herkimer poison gas attack of the New Year was on Thursday, 2/15/18, between 1200 and 1530 on Pleasant Avenue, from the area of the rental houses the Stanley Sykes’ gang occupies next to our home. Herkimer’s entrenched drug and child traffickers were marking the one-year anniversary of their first murderous poison gas attack on us with a fresh mist dose of an invisible odorless pesticide.
Being gas, it didn’t confine itself to our yard, but spread as a toxic mist along Pleasant Avenue during prime school bus time. Not poisoned were the Barton and Sykes gang kids, all of whom had vanished from the street.
Herkimer Poison Gas Again an Odorless Pyrethroid Insecticide
Driveby poison gas attack on our home on 8.10.17 using Deltamethrin. Attackers stop in front of Carrie Ann Bass’ 334 Pleasant Ave to give victory flash.
The poison gas used again had all the attributes and symptoms of odorless Deltamethrin, a pyrethroid insecticide. The weapon of choice appears to remain battery-powered hand foggers. As educated victims of scores of previous Herkimer poison gas attacks, we recognized the symptoms of Deltamethrin: stinging of the eyes, dizziness, itching skin, rashes. Symptoms may also include including burning, partial numbness, “pins and needles”, skin crawling, and different abnormal sensations of the face and lips.
Herkimer Poison Gas Warnings
If you believe you or your children were or are affected, seek medical help and tell them you suspect a pyrethroid. Prolonged exposure to the repeated gas attacks common to Herkimer can cause a host of developmental medical problems, such as endocrine disorders and Parkinson’s disease.
Deltamethrin dissipates quickly but can leave havoc in its wake. It’s a neurotoxin; it attacks the central nervous system. It’s absorb by breast milk and can be passed on to nursing infants. It lingers in the environment, contaminating clothing, bedding and other soft goods, people and pets.
Latest Herkimer Poison Gas Attack Coincident with Joyce Barton’s New Prosperity
It was our first gassing since October here on Herkimer’s unfortunately-named Pleasant Avenue. As with other Herkimer poison gas attacks, this one was signaled by a sudden obvious infusion of cash to our neighbor Joyce Barton, who’d been struggling to make ends meet after her well-known green Herkimer methmobile delivery car died a very public death. She now has a cute used blue Corolla with a spiffy spoiler. Though she rarely uses her new car, she’s probably out there somewhere, adding to Herkimer’s opioid epidemic from her handsome new double-cab pickup truck, garaged elsewhere. Someone’s got her back. Again.
Joyce’s putative husband, East Herkimer Volunteer Fire Chief Douglas Barton, appears to have moved from Joyce Barton’s 330 Pleasant Avenue. Doug’s been replaced by a pickup truck-driving cutout.
Herkimer Landlord Jay Smith Continues Sheltering Stanley Sykes Gang
We weren’t home when the gas came in. It was targeted at a first floor window. Like many other of the preceding 50+ poison gas attacks, it came from the Stanley Sykes gang’s parking lot, which abuts our back yard and spans 341 Eureka and 334 Pleasant Avenues. The Sykes gang members are long-time tenants of Herkimer landlord Jay Smith.
Joyce Barton and Stanley Sykes are allies, probably dating back to before they were chased out of Utica. It was kind of Joyce to remember us after she got some cash and threw some Stanley’s way.
Herkimer’s Sykes Gang Steadily Trafficking Out of 334 Pleasant Avenue
Stanley Sykes himself no longer traffics in his signature red SUV heroin hearse. He’s downgraded to an older, rusted white Hyundai Elantra (NY license HUR 8272) of the sort favored by Herkimer’s less flamboyant drug dealers.
We keep hearing that Carrie Ann Bass has moved, but we continue seeing her slipping across that parking lot from 334 Pleasant to Stanley’s 341 Eureka. And a flow of customers to her side door, rather than her front, the Herkimer Police having apparently forbidden her the street.
Sykes Gang’s Carrie Ann Bass and Her Invisible Cat
We haven’t been treated to one of Carrie Ann’s harassment performances since September, when she slipped down the street a few houses to the no-man’s land between the creepy stalking methheads house and ours. Here she is in that performance. (The other woman appears to be from the methheads house.)
The brazen narco-terrorism of Herkimer’s poison gas attacks have sent our social media metrics soaring. (If only we were paid, and by the view.) People expect poison gas attacks in Syria and Yemen, not in America. But as the folks here say with a shrug, “It’s Herkimer.”
Why Are They Still Here?
I’m sure we’re not the only ones relieved that the Herkimer police are finally cracking down on criminal harassment and street assaults and arresting thugs. But as long as Herkimer values the blood money of the vile likes of the Sykes gang and Joyce Barton over the safety of it citizens, Herkimer’s telling the world it’s dirty, and likes it. And if that’s not true, ask yourself, why are they still here?
For months, depraved criminals openly used weapons of mass destruction to poison us, our neighbors, and much of South Herkimer Village, drifting toxic mists forming from the witch’s brew of pesticides they released on us.
Thanks to law enforcement drone surveillance coordinated with ground intercepts, the driveby poison gas attacks on us using hand foggers here on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue have been stopped. The last driveby gas attack we noted was on 10/11, and that didn’t seem part of the earlier coordinated attacks. Those had ended some weeks before. Anyone arrested is probably looking at some heavy federal prison time. Anyone not arrested is probably sweating being turned in for lighter sentences.
The Last Herkimer Poison Gas Attacks?
The last Herkimer poison gas attacks on our home (330 Pleasant Avenue) that we noted were on 11/14 between 9:00 and 9:15 pm, and 11/22 at 3:30 a.m. Both attacks were from either the rear or the 328 Pleasant side of our house. They were close together, each signaled by multiple “Whomps” of released compression, like a mortar firing or a bear’s loud whuff. The pesticide was probably released by timer in an attempt to outwit drone surveillance by an absence of suspects in the likely areas at the reported time of the attack. Any toxics fired down our driveway also poisoned the street and neighboring homes.
Herkimer Poison Gas Attacks – The Bad News
Although the driveby poison gas sprayers seem gone, other poisoners are still here. They’re part of the back and side yard gassing squad.
These were coordinated attacks, using a carefully chosen array of pesticides and agricultural pesticide dispensing equipment. Given the limited nature of the Sykes gang members, a rogue agricultural pesticide expert was probably consulted. Gassing attacks from yards continued after the drivebys ended. Larger poisoning gear was probably set for late night timed release, as it was in this video. The video shows the two types of attacks, streaming and misting. Watch carefully on the lower right at 0.48, and you’ll see the poison mist from a handfogger enter the yard next door from the driveway, then dissipate.
Herkimer Poison Gas Attacks — the Creepy Stalking Meth Heads
Here’s a video showing two of our camera-shy, suspected poison gassers. They specialize in the late night gassing of us from rear and side yards. We call them Thing 1 and Thing 2, or collectively, the drunks. (They’re on a different road to Hell than alcohol, but their speech is often slurred.) They’re creepy.
These two depraved specimens of the ravages of meth amphetamine addiction have had much to do with the scores of overlapping poison gas attacks on us, here on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue. They’re proud of their work and will come up to you on the sidewalk and ask with a grin, “How do you like being gassed?” (Reply: “How do you like going to Hell?”)
I call them Thing 1 and Thing 2, and collectively, the drunks, as they often sound drunk. They’re known associates of Herkimer’s Stanley Sykes gang, which is embedded in two Jay Smith houses on the other side of us, at 334 Pleasant Avenue and 341 Eureka Avenue. The Sykes’ gang loudly holds us and our video-rich blog responsible for their unprofitable trafficking operations. (For a long time, they didn’t believe in surveillance drones, and so never bothered to look up.)
Night often finds the drunks stalking our property, making mischief and peering at our cameras to see if the little red lights are on. In this video, one of them immediately notices our door camera is missing (firmware update), and comes to check on our health and try to scope out the locks and sensors. He ignores two No Trespassing signs. He asks for me. He was told he was trespassing and sent off. Typically, our criminal visitors ask for whichever one of us the two of us doesn’t answer the door. They’re sent to see if we’re yet sickened and dying.
The nighttime drunk in the video contents himself with scoping out our street-side cameras and either chatting with them, or possibly blessing us and our home.
We’ve heard Stanley Sykes declare to his krew that he paid for the right to traffic out of his multi-house Herkimer location and vow that we will soon be gone. (In fairness, Stanley did offer us $1,500 for our house.)
Herkimer’s Stanley Sykes, the Addicts’ Friend
That’s the drunks’ yard seen from our back bedroom. The photo was taken on 11/22/17, the date of the last known poison gas attack on us. The two were apparently then gifted with the contents of those small white plastic bags littering their yard. Stanley Sykes was seen visiting them that day.
Both human husks are long-term tenants at Jay Smith’s 326 Pleasant Avenue. Harriett Tangorra’s vacant 328 Pleasant lies between us, it’s backyard wide open to them and pesticide dispensers. The houses on either side of their’s are for sale. Probably will be for a while.
Long Term Effects of Herkimer Poison Gas Attacks
The effects of these heinous attacks will continue to impact us, our neighbors and pets, and the Herkimer village environment for a long time. We’ve had health issues attributable to pesticide exposure. Our backyard remains toxic. Our beautiful birds are gone, poisoned in our yard from Sykes’ yard. We didn’t know that by feeding them, we were luring them to their deaths. And still, our poisoners are here.
