TOWN OF LOCKPORT -- A 24-year-old Lockport woman was charged with marijuana possession and police confiscated suspected crack cocaine from another woman following a traffic stop on Robinson Road.

According to a report from the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, a vehicle being driven by Nicole Petroziello "turned from the left lane into the right lane directly in front of patrol. The turn in front of Patrol was too close and did not leave enough room between the two vehicles."

When patrol interviewed Petroziello, they noticed the smell of marijuana and the driver admitted that she and her passenger had just smoked a couple of "blunts," then handed patrol two marijuana cigarettes.

Patrol had the passengers of the vehicle get out, at which point they found that one female passenger had a bag of white powdery substance that she claimed was crack cocaine. Patrol also located a small glass smoking device commonly used for smoking crack-cocaine and piece of burnt steel wool, also commonly used for smoking crack-cocaine.

Patrol asked the woman why she would have cocaine and crack related items, she stated "I don't know, I wanted to try it," according to the report. Patrol secured all of the drug/drug related items into sealed evidence bags.

Petroziello was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and released on an appearance ticket, as well as a traffic ticket for moving from lane unsafely and operating a motor vehicle with a non-supervising front seat occupant.

The two marijuana cigarettes were turned into the NCSO Forensic Laboratory for evidence and analysis, as was the suspected crack cocaine.

The woman with the suspected crack cocaine "was not charged on scene," according to the NCSO report. Patrol will follow up with her "as the laboratory results are returned."
