James W. Kohl, 32, and Kimberly Ann Leonard, 51, both of Orangeport Street, Gasport, address were arrested on resisting arrest and other charges after being stopped for speeding by Buffalo police about 6:15 p.m. Sunday in the 1700 block of Niagara Street.

Kohl is charged with resisting arrest, escape, falsely reporting an incident and obstructing governmental administration.

Kohl was paroled in April 2011 from the state’s Franklin Correctional Facility after serving a term for a Buffalo-area car theft and attempted burglary. He was captured because of the state Division of Parole ankle monitor he was wearing Sunday, according to a police report.

Leonard faces possible charges for a burnt marijuana “blunt” allegedly found below her front passenger seat and the 15 hydrocodone tablets found in an unmarked container in her purse. Police reported Kohl was accused of driving 40 mph in a 30 mph zone.
