Police: Woman carrying bag of meth arrested near Town of Tonawanda restaurant

TOWN OF TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) — Town of Tonawanda Police say a woman suspected of possessing methamphetamine was arrested in the area of Ying’s K Cafe.

The restaurant is located at the corner of Decatur Road and Niagara Falls Boulevard. Police arrested Dawn Weevie, 32, around 6:45 Friday morning.

The Tonawanda woman was charged with felony criminal possession of a controlled substance after police say they found her carrying a large bag of meth that she had cooked. Weevie had been cooking in her home several houses away, according to police.

Authorities say they found four ounces of meth in her possession.

She is being held at the Town of Tonawanda Police headquarters pending arraignment.

Ying’s K Cafe owner, Kate Li, says she didn’t know the parking lot was a crime scene until her friend called her.

“It’s pretty scary because the first thing on my mind was ‘Wow what’s happening in the area?’” said Li. “We don’t know anything about what happened. The police department was telling us we could go back to doing business at 4 p.m. Everything should be clear there, should be nothing to worry about at my business or the building, everything is fine here.”
