ROME — A Rome woman wanted for drug possession is facing an additional charge after she lied about her identity, according to the Rome Police Department.

Police said Lareina Reyes, 27, of Rome, was found driving a stolen vehicle on Martin Street in Rome at about 12:45 p.m. Sept. 5. The vehicle had been reported missing out of Madison County.

Once stopped, police said Reyes was found with a quantity of drugs, and she was taken into custody. Reyes was charged with one count of fourth-degree possession of stolen property and was turned over to the Madison County Sheriff's Office for further charges.

Soon after, police said they tested the drugs and found them to be cocaine. A warrant was issued for Reyes on a charge of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, and additional warrants were lodged when she failed to appear in Rome City Court, authorities stated.

Around 11 a.m. Tuesday, police said they spotted Reyes at Depeyster and Lawrence streets and questioned her about the warrants. Police said Reyes gave the officers a different person's name and date of birth, claiming she was born in 1978.

Reyes is charged with an additional count of false personation, police stated. She is scheduled to appear in Rome City Court on all her charges.
