SHELDON, N.Y. (WKBW) State troopers arrested 23-year-old Michael O'Connor of Buffalo over the weekend, charging him with marijuana possession and traffic violations.

A New York State Police spokesperson says troopers pulled O'Connor's vehicle over on State Route 20A in Sheldon, after a trooper clocked him driving 51 miles per hour in a 35 m.p.h. zone.

Troopers found 50 grams of marijuana in O'Connor's car. He was taken into custody at the scene and later released on appearance tickets for Sheldon Town Court.
