Mother facing drug charges following traffic stop

Saturday, February 18, 2012 - Updated: 12:48 AM

TOWN OF MOHAWK -- Deputies from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office arrested a Gloversville woman on drug charges Wednesday while she was driving with an unrestrained young child.

Amy Lyne Johnson, 22, of 33 Fifth Ave., Gloversville, was charged with seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and she was also ticketed for failing to have a front license plate and having a back seat passenger between the ages of 4 and 7 without a proper restraint.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said deputies stopped Johnson in the town of Mohawk because of a license plate violation and a DMV check revealed she was wanted on an active bench warrant out of Saratoga County.

A subsequent search of her vehicle revealed that Johnson was in possession of hydrocodone pills that were not prescribed to her and she was taken to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office where she was processed.

Johnson was taken into custody by Deputy Michael G. Spaulding and issued an appearance ticket for Mohawk Town Court and two traffic tickets before being turned over to the New State Police in Saratoga County to answer a bench warrant.

She is expected to appear in town court on Feb. 28 at 6 p.m. to answer the charges.
