BEMUS POINT – Two people are facing around a half-a-dozen charges after police allegedly recovered stolen social security cards, credit cards, checks and drugs during a traffic stop last week.
New York State Police say troopers made contact with 25-year-old Tyisha Kaiser and 34-year-old Dakatoah Kaltenbach while investigating a disabled vehicle on I-86 in Bemus Point on Saturday.
While speaking with the two troopers say they learned both Kaiser and Kaltenbach had suspended driver licenses and the vehicle was allegedly taken from a third party without permission.
Before the vehicle was towed away, police search the car and allegedly found a bag containing heroin, a scale containing drug residue, used syringes, four social security cards belonging to different individuals, two check books belonging to neither Kaiser nor Kaltenbach, two forged checks, four credit cards belonging to neither Kaiser nor Kaltenbach, and four debit cards belonging to a female subject.
Additionally, an order of protection prevented Kaiser, the driver of the vehicle, from Kaltenbach, the passenger.
Police charged Kaiser with second-degree forgery, fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia and second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation. Meanwhile, Kaltenbach is charged with second-degree Criminal Contempt and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Kaiser and Kaltenbach were then processed and transported to the Chautauqua County Jail.
