GOWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) - State Police didn't have trouble arresting a man wanted on an active bench warrant after he went to the same sub shop troopers chose for their lunch break.
Troopers went to the Gowanda shop for lunch and spotted 24-year-old Joshua Bowers of Persia walking in after they had returned to their patrol car with their food. Troopers confirmed the warrant with the Erie County Sheriff's Office and then took Bowers into custody without incident.
State Police say when Bowers was arrested he had marijuana and a hydrocodone tablet in his pockets, so he was additionally charged with seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana.
He was then turned over to sheriff's deputies.
