SPRINGVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Sardinia woman is facing a felony charge after Erie County Sheriff’s deputies say she was caught driving with a fake, homemade license plate.

Deputies noticed the vehicle while on patrol on Springville. They say the vehicle driven by Amanda Schweickert, 28, had no front license plate and an imitation of a New York plate on the back.

The license plate was made out of cardboard and painted to look like a real plate, according to deputies.

Schweickert was charged with a felony count of possessing a forged instrument and was accused of driving with a suspended registration. Along with that, she also faces three vehicle and traffic offenses.

She was committed to the Erie County Holding Center on $400 bail.
