A Johnstown man is facing false personation and drug charges after a traffic stop last Sunday in the town of Johnstown.
State police said Dennis D. Myers gave troopers a false name and date of birth on two occasions in the last four months. This was determined after a traffic stop last Sunday, when a trooper pulled Myers over on Route 67 in the town of Johnstown for crossing over hazard markings.
The trooper detected an odor of marijuana in the vehicle and asked for the driver's name, according to troopers. Myers told police he didn't have any identification on him, but after an interview and search of the driver and vehicle, the trooper found his wallet, ID and a quantity of marijuana.
The same trooper recalled stopping Myers on a separate occasion in October 2013, state police said. He looked up the paperwork from the traffic stop and discovered Myers had also given him a false name and date of birth during that stop.
Myers was charged with two counts of false personation, as well as unlawful possession of marijuana. He was issued a ticket to appear Feb. 19 in Johnstown Town Court.
