Lunch break leads to arrest

GOWANDA – Troopers assigned to the Collins State Police barracks stopped at a Gowanda sub shop for lunch on Thursday and observed a man inside wanted on an active bench warrant. Upon receiving their food, they observed Joshua A. Bowers, 24, of Persia, enter the restaurant and place his order. After quietly confirming the warrant with the Erie County Sheriff’s Office (issuing agency), Bowers was taken into custody without incident. Prior to transport, Bowers was found to be in possession of one hydrocodone tablet and a small amount of marijuana. He was processed at the Collins barracks for seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana before being turned over to the sheriff’s office. He is scheduled to appear in Collins Town Court later this month.
