BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A driver is accused of having more than six ounces of marijuana with him during a traffic checkpoint on East Amherst Street, Friday.

New York State Police say they spotted marijuana in 26-year-old Thomas Mayfield’s car console, while he was reaching for his registration. Troopers say he also had marijuana in his pants.

He was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of marijuana and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation.

Troopers were working with the Buffalo Strike Force Detail over the weekend when they made the arrest. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
