Police are charging 49-year-old Cassandra Metros is facing felony charges after she admitted to making a homemade license plate.

Erie County Sheriff Deputies arrested Metros on October 30th at approximately 6:45 P.M. in the Village of Springville. They say Metros' license had an active suspension for failure to answer a summons in Village of Springville Court, a suspended vehicle registration, and the motor vehicle did not have insurance coverage. 

She also admitted to deputies that she had purchased a license plate online and was using a fake plate until she could address issues with the vehicle.

Metros was arrested and charged with a felony count of possessing a forged instrument, misdemeanor counts of operating a vehicle with a suspended registration and aggravated unlicensed operation, as well as four separate violations of the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law.
