On October 6, 2019, State Police in Cobleskill arrested 25-year-old Dylan Finch of Schoharie, for Criminal Possession of Marihuana 3rd degree (E felony) and False Personation (A misdemeanor).
At approximately 9:01 p.m. on Sunday, State Police stopped a vehicle on State Route 7 in Schoharie for a traffic infraction. When the Trooper interviewed the driver, subsequently identified as Dylan Finch, Finch provided him with a false name.
