Car breaks down, leads police to arrests

SHELDON, N.Y. (WIVB) - Two Buffalo residents are facing charges after their car broke down in the middle of a hill, during a weekend snowstorm in Wyoming County. The sheriff’s office says  Carolyn Small, 28, was driving in the Town of Sheldon when the car broke down.

The sheriff’s office says Small provided an expired New York driver’s license, which was found to be suspended. The sheriff’s office says her passenger, 27-year-old Samuel Radford IV, said he had a valid license but was unable to find it.

According to the sheriff’s office, both Small and Radford had provided fake names because they have suspended licenses and warrants out for their arrest from the Town of Cheektowaga. They were each charged with criminal impersonation and false impersonation.

Small was also charged with two counts of third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, unlicensed operator and possession of another’s license. Radford also had a warrant out of the Town of Attica.

They were arraigned in Town of Java Court and taken to Wyoming County Jail. They will answer charges in Town of Sheldon Court.
