Driver allegedly lied about identity, carried narcotic pill

CONCORD, N.Y. (WIVB) – A man is accused of lying about his identity to an Erie County Sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop at 1:30 a.m. Thursday.

Corey Furl of Cattaraugus was stopped on Genesee Road in Concord, and told deputies he had no ID on him. Authorities say he had a narcotic pill on him.

The Erie County Sheriff’s Office says the 40-year-old Furl lied about his identity twice to try to hide the fact he has two suspensions on his driver’s license. But deputies were able to positively identify him later.

Furl is charged with criminal impersonation, criminal possession of a controlled substance, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, and several other vehicle and traffic violations, including failing to have an interlock ignition device installed in his vehicle.

His vehicle was towed and Furl was taken to the Erie County Holding Center on $1,000 bail. He is due back in Town of Concord Court at a later date.
