'House hunters' charged after deputies recover stolen handgun

A suspicious vehicle in a Main Street parking lot in Newfane early Friday morning piqued the curiosity of Niagara County deputies.

Adult occupants of the car told deputies they were house hunting, but both wound up being arrested, and two children in the car were turned over to Erie County Child Protective Services.

Amos L. Rowsey III, 36, of Buffalo was charged with weapons possession and possession of stolen property after deputies found a handgun in the vehicle that was reported stolen from a Town of Wilson residence.

Shawneque L. Tubbins, 37, also of Buffalo, was charged with marijuana possession and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, pertaining to the children, ages 2 and 4, who were with the couple.
