Harrison Police Charge Man With False Personation

HARRISON, N.Y. – Michael S. Grant, 25, was charged with false personation after he gave a fake name when he was pulled over Monday at Westchester and Columbus avenues, Harrison police said.

The police report said Grant, of White Plains, was stopped at 3:52 p.m. for not wearing a seat belt. Grant did not have any identification on him, and when the officer asked for his name he responded that it was “Christopher Smith” and also gave a false birth date, the report said.

A search of that name and birth date found no driver's license on file. Grant admitted that he did not have a license, then provided the officer with his real name, the report said.

A search of his real name and birth date showed that Grant was driving with a suspended license for failure to respond to four summonses on two dates. He was charged with false personation, a class B misdemeanor, and released on $250 bail. He is due June 12 in Town Court.

The following incident was also reported by Harrison police:

Drug Arrest : Amber Renea Walling, 21, of Holyoke, Mass., was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor; and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation, stemming from an incident Sunday, June 3, at 2:04 a.m. by Harrison police headquarters, 650 North St.

The police report said the arresting officer pulled over a vehicle driven by a 27-year-old Yorktown man because it was weaving in and out of the traffic lane. Upon approaching the vehicle, the officer smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, the report said. The driver denied having any marijuana on him.

Upon searching the vehicle, the officer found an open duffel bag on the front passenger floorboard containing 5 grams of concentrated cannabis, 3 grams of marijuana, six capsules of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine, and a glass pipe with marijuana residue. Walling admitted the marijuana and pills belonged to her, the report said. The Yorktown man was not charged.
