Traffic stop leads to charges of pot possession

A West Seneca man faces felony drug charges after being stopped by City of Tonawanda police who say that he ran a red light on Main and Minerva streets Saturday evening.

When Nicholas A. Gallagher, 21, of Centennial Court West Seneca was pulled over by city police at about 5:30 p.m. on the traffic violation, Officer Mathew Wark reported noticing a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. Gallagher reportedly turned over a marijuana pipe and several glass bowls were found in the center console.

There also was a pound of suspected marijuana on the front seat and nearly an ounce of waxed concentrated cannabis.

Gallagher is charged with criminal possession of marijuana in the third degree, criminal possession of a controlled substance and passing a red light.
