Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — NT men caught with marijuana
Two North Tonawanda men are facing marijuana possession charges after a traffic stop in Pendleton over the weekend.
The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office said Matthew G. Myers, 20, 112 East Felton St., and Luke K. Zacher, 20, 183 Rumbold Ave., were charged Saturday with unlawful possession of marijuana.
A Niagara County Sheriff’s deputy initiated a traffic stop on a speeding vehicle on Tonawanda Creek Road. While speaking with the driver and passenger, the deputy detected a marijuana odor emanating from the vehicle. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of a container with marijuana, the arrest report said.
Myers and Zacher both were given tickets to appear Dec. 4 in Pendleton Town Court.

HARASSMENT: Brandon K. Hoffman, 20, of Lockport, was charged with second-degree harassment Sunday. Hoffman was given an appearance ticket by New York State Police.
DWI: Julie A. Austin, 55, 2596 Coomer Road, was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated and felony DWI about 7 p.m. Sunday. A Niagara County Sheriff’s deputy reported Austin’s vehicle was traveling north on Coomer Road when it veered off the road and stopped in a ditch. Austin was not injured but was trapped in the vehicle as the doors would not open. She eventually crawled out of the vehicle and spoke with the deputy, who determined Austin was intoxicated. Later testing showed Austin’s blood alcohol content was 0.28 percent, the sheriff’s office said. The felony DWI charge was filed because Austin was convicted of DWI previously, in 2007, the sheriff’s office said. Austin was held at the county jail on $750 bail pending arraignment Tuesday in Newfane Town Court.
