Dunkirk woman charged with forgery and impersonation
The victim alleged Oste had used the victim's name on at least two traffic stops since April. The victim received letters in the mail notifying her that her license was going to be suspended for failure to respond to traffic tickets.
The investigation revealed that Oste had identified herself as the victim when a trooper pulled her over on Route 60 in Gerry on April 1 and on April 13. Oste reportedly did this to avoid detection since her driver's license had been suspended multiple times. Oste also signed the victim's name to the Town of Gerry Ticket when she mailed it into court.
Troopers took Oste into custody at her residence in Dunkirk and transported her to state police headquarters in Fredonia. After processed for the violations, she was arraigned in the Town of Dunkirk Court and remanded to the Chautauqua County Jail.
