Town of Collins woman jailed on traffic charges

A 34-year-old Town of Collins woman was jailed Thursday afternoon in the Erie County Holding Center after she was arrested in Springville for allegedly driving while under the influence of drugs.

Amy A. Moritz of Rt. 39 was arrested about 4:45 p.m. in a parking lot on West Main Street. Sheriff Timothy B. Howard said further checks linked her with damage to a mailbox on Mill Street and to an earlier arrest for driving while intoxicated.

Moritz was charged with driving while impaired by drugs, leaving the scene of a property damage accident, failing to maintain her lane and aggravated unlicensed driving because her license was suspended last year. The sheriff said deputies were alerted to her erratic driving, which prompted her arrest. Her vehicle was towed from the parking lot where she was taken into custody.

She was being held pending her arraignment in Springville Village Court, and the sheriff said she has an arrest warrant pending for a Town of Hamburg traffic incident. Hers is the 99th arrest this year by the sheriff’s office for driving under the influence, Howard said.
