GLOVERSVILLE — Three people are facing charges, some drug-related, after a Tuesday traffic stop.

After being pulled over on Park Street, the vehicle's driver, Christina M. Whelly, told police there was a Taser in the vehicle and that there was a small amount of the prescription drug Suboxone, for which nobody in the vehicle had a prescription, according to Gloversville police.

As a result, police brought in a state police K-9 handler, and a dog was used to search the vehicle, according to the police report. That search turned up more than 9 grams of crack cocaine, more than a half-ounce of marijuana and "a large quantity" of a prescription drug, police said.

After further investigation, Whelly, 26, of 117 S. Market St., Johnstown, was charged with third-degree possession of a weapon and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, police said.

Adonta B. Moore, 20, of 32 Park St., a passenger in Whelly's vehicle, was charged with third- and fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana.

A 16-year-old Amsterdam resident who was also a passenger in Whelly's vehicle was charged with obstruction of governmental administration after he was found to be concealing property related to the initial traffic stop, police said.

All three were arraigned in City Court and were sent to Fulton County jail. The teen and Whelly were held on $5,000 cash bail or $25,000 bond, and Moore was held on $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond, according to the police report.
