Man gives two false names in attempt to avoid arrest

State Police who stopped a man in Alden say he gave two false names because he was wanted for violating his parole.

Troopers pulled over a driver for running a red light on Broadway Street around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday. The man told police he was “Sean McFadden” with a date of birth that would make him 25-years-old, but the man could not produce a driver’s license.

When troopers checked on the man’s alleged identity, they say it showed a different middle initial and the driver would be 40-years-old instead of 25.

After confronting the man, police say he relented and said he was actually “Shawn Moore” and gave a date of birth that would make him 40-years-old.

State Police say they found no Shawn Moore, but did find an Isham Moore of Brooklyn, who was wanted on a warrant for violating parole and occasionally is known to use “Shawn Moore” as an alias.

The driver was arrested for second degree criminal impersonation and photo evidence proved that he is really Isham Moore.

He was taken to the Erie County Holding Center on $2,500 bail. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
