Man stopped with loaded gun at Peace Bridge

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Police were called to the Peace Bridge early Monday morning by U.S. Customs when officers came across a man with a loaded pistol.

Officers took the illegal .40 caliber pistol and New York State Troopers arrested Wayne A. Hylton, a 45-year-old Mobile, Alabama man. After he was processed in Buffalo, police charged him with felony second degree criminal possession of a weapon.

As Hylton couldn’t post $50,000 bail, he was remanded to the Erie County Jail. He’ll appear in court again on May 14. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
