An Allegany County man who had a loaded rifle, two loaded and unlicensed pistols, a silencer, more than 180 rounds of ammunition, a knife and handcuffs when Buffalo police stopped him last year on the West Side faces up to 15 years in prison after he was convicted on weapon charges.

David Anderson, 40, of Fillmore, was pulled over by police around midnight May 30 because he was driving his truck the wrong way on Auburn Avenue, prosecutors said. He told police he was searching for a prostitute.

He was convicted of two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon last week after a nonjury trial before State Supreme Court Justice M. William Boller, according to Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III. He will be sentenced May 13.
