On Thursday, February 8, 2024, at about 2:13 AM, patrol officers of the Rome Police Department conducted a traffic stop on Culverton Road and River Road. The operator gave a false name and was eventually identified as Gary L. Newell (33 yrs. old) of Rome. Newell had an active Rome City Court Bench Warrant and a Non-Driver ID only, with a suspended status.

Newell was taken into custody. As a result, the vehicle was towed. A subsequent inventory was completed of the vehicle.

In addition to Newell’s active Rome City Court Bench Warrant, he was also charged with Aggravated Unlicensed Operation 3rd Degree, False Personation, two counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 3rd Degree, and two counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 4th Degree.
