    NEWFANE, N.Y. (WIVB) — A man wanted on multiple extradition warrants out of Indiana was found in Newfane early Friday morning, the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office announced.

    Shortly after 2:30 a.m., a deputy stopped a vehicle on Chestnut Road that was being driven with a headlight out. According to officials, the driver falsely identified himself.

    Identified as 40-year-old Wilson resident Richard Baldwin, deputies said his four warrants out of Indiana totaled six charges pertaining to meth and vehicle theft.

    Baldwin was charged with false personation, unlicensed operation and having no/inadequate headlight.

    Baldwin’s passenger, 37-year-old Lockport resident Michael Doxey, Jr., was taken into custody on an active bench warrant out of Lockport accusing him of petit larceny, resisting arrest and obstruction of governmental administration.

    Both Baldwin and Doxey were remanded to the Niagara County Correctional Facility. Baldwin was taken in to await extradition, while Doxey was said to be awaiting further proceedings in Lockport and Clarence. Doxey faces additional warrants relating to burglary, the sheriff’s office said.

    Officials said a third passenger was given a courtesy transport and the vehicle was impounded.
