Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports the early morning arrest of a Cattaraugus man for multiple charges following a traffic stop in the Town of Concord.
Erie County Sheriff's Deputy Brad Ballantyne was on patrol on Genesee Rd. in the Town of Concord about 1:30am Thursday morning and stopped a vehicle driven by 40 year old Corey J. Furl of Aust Rd. in Cattaraugus for a traffic violation. When interviewed, Furl claimed that he had no ID on him and twice lied about his identity in an effort to hide the fact that he had 2 suspensions on his driver's license. He was later positively identified by his picture ID. Furl also had a narcotic pill on his possession that was not in the proper container.
Furl was arrested and charged with Criminal Impersonation, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance, Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle and various other traffic violations, including a misdeamenor charge of Failing to have an Interlock Device in the vehicle which is on his license restrictions. His vehicle was towed from the scene and he was taken to the Erie County Holding Center and held on $1000 bail. Furl will be arraigned in the Town of Concord Court at a later time.
