RANDOLPH – A 35-year-old Conewango Valley man is facing felony charges after police allege they found a modified firearm in his vehicle during a traffic stop.

New York State Police report that Daniel Visker was pulled over on I-86 in Randolph Monday for a traffic violation.








During the stop, troopers say, the modified firearm with ammunition was found inside his vehicle.

Visker was then placed under arrest and transported to the State Police Barracks in Jamestown.









After checking his criminal history, troopers say he was charged with third-degree felony criminal possession of a weapon due to a prior felony conviction barring him from owning a weapon.

Visker was then processed, arraigned and remanded to the Cattaraugus County Jail, trooper say.
