Niagara County Sheriff's deputies said they verified the identity of a man stopped for speeding by positively identifying a tattoo on his neck Thursday morning.
Raymond M. Burley, 27, 1570 Buffalo Ave., was stopped on Lockport-Olcott Road about 11:15 a.m. for driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone.
While Burley gave the deputy a different first name and date of birth, the deputy thought he knew Burley and had dispatchers check on any information regarding tattoos. The dispatcher reported back that Raymond Burley had "Ray" tattooed on the right side of his neck.
Sure enough, when the deputy checked, "Ray" was tattooed on Burley's neck. He was then charged with second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, false personation, unlicensed operation, possession of a hypodermic instrument and speeding.
The Niagara Falls Parole Office was informed of the arrest.
