Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — CLARENCE — Two Newfane residents are facing drug charges stemming from a New York State Police traffic stop Wednesday.

Ryan W. Finch, 30, and Kristal Prica, 50, were both charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Finch was also charged with criminal possession of a weapon and other traffic and vehicle violations.

State Police said Finch has a suspended driver's license but he was not charged for driving without a valid license.

Troopers along with members of the Buffalo Strike Force Detail stopped Finch's vehicle on Niagara Street at Fargo for having a loud exhaust and no passenger-side mirror.

While searching the vehicle, troopers reportedly found drug paraphernalia with heroin residue and a switchblade.

Both Finch and Prica were processed and arraigned in Buffalo.
