LEWISTON – State Police reported Thursday that they charged a City of Tonawanda man this past weekend with sale and possession of marijuana after he was found with more than 25 grams of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia in a traffic stop on Route 31.

Vincent M. Consiglio, 21, was stopped Saturday and issued a ticket for having an uninspected motor vehicle. Following the stop, he was additionally charged with third-degree criminal sale of marijuana and fifth-degree criminal possession.

A trooper said the odor of marijuana prompted a search and led to the additional charges.

Consiglio was issued an appearance ticket and a court date in the Town of Lewiston for June 17.
