A Dansville man is facing several charges following a traffic stop in the Town of Seneca Falls. Town police state that a report was made for a subject that was at a local bar and was refused service and left the bar in a vehicle. Vehicle description was given to police and a vehicle matching the description was located on Route 414, where officers observed traffic infractions and initiated a traffic stop.
