Tony Warner, 25, of Gelston Street, was charged with criminal possession of a hypodermic needle and traffic infractions, including driving with a suspended license, when he was stopped just before noon Friday on Niagara Street and West Ferry Street for allegedly failing to properly signal a lane change.

A check of his car revealed a hypodermic needle and a state computer check showed his license had been suspended on Dec. 7.

The needle was found “in plain view on the rear passenger side floorboard,” according to a police report, which said Warner’s license had been suspended four times in recent years.
