A Buffalo woman faces weapons, evidence tampering and marijuana charges after a traffic stop Tuesday night on Grand Island, the Erie County Sheriff's Office said.
A deputy pulled over a vehicle driven by Tracie Moore, 54, of Buffalo, for unspecified traffic violations at about 6:30 p.m. on Whitehaven Road, the Sheriff's Office said. Moore was ticketed for several violations, including driving without a license.
A passenger in the car was unable to produce any identification and gave the deputy a name and date of birth. The deputy determined the name was fake, but was able to identify the passenger as Amanda Negron, 30.
Negron was arrested and transported to the Erie County Holding Center where she was observed trying to hide and eat a bag of marijuana, according to deputies. Deputies discovered additional marijuana hidden in her clothing and a metal knuckle knife and a stun gun in her purse, authorities said.
She was charged with false personation, tampering with evidence, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana. She was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.
