JAMESTOWN – A 27-year-old Ashville woman was arrested Thursday by State Police and charged with felony second-degree forgery and criminal impersonation for allegedly having used another person’s name during a traffic stop in the Town of Busti a month ago.

Laci J. Lawson was also ticketed for having an uninspected car and for aggravated unlicensed driving. The State Police learned of the January deception when the person whose name was used last month got a notice from the Busti Town Court imposing a $93 fine. That person quickly contacted State Police and Lawson was tracked down and arrested. She faces further Busti Town Court proceedings in several weeks.
