What started as a traffic stop for a vehicle without a front bumper, ended with traffic ticket for the driver and arrests for the passengers.

According to a report by the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, patrol saw a car going southbound on Beattie Avenue without a front bumper and initiated the traffic stop.

While interviewing the driver, Anthony Gamble, the front passenger offered his driver's license to patrol. The rear passenger, however, told patrol that he did not have his license on him.

Patrol asked the front passenger — Reshawn L. Staten, 25, of Buffalo — to exit the vehicle for questioning and Staten told patrol he had a small plastic bag containing 12 pills for which he didn't have a prescription. Staten said that he was told by his doctor that it was OK to trade medication with other people "as long as it was one for one." Patrol identified the medication as Alprazolam 1mg by the markings of 2089V.

Patrol then interviewed the rear passenger, who identified himself as Cody W. Mayes. A NYPSIN check revealed that there was an active warrant out on Mayes from the New York State Police in Clarence for petit larceny and placed Mayes into custody.

Gamble was issued a traffic ticket. Staten was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and taken to Niagara County Jail where he was held on $500 bail. He is to appear in Town of Lockport Court on Thursday. The blue pills were submitted for forensic testing. And Mayes was transported to the county line where Clarence troopers picked him up.
