Suspended Driver In All Sorts Of Trouble

Chatham-Kent police say what started out as a traffic stop, led them to bust a suspended driver who had drugs on him.

Officers allege the man also lied to police about his identity and was wanted for failing to report where he was living after he was released from custody back in August.

Investigators say an officer on general patrol caught up with the 48-year-old man after pulling over a vehicle that was reportedly speeding down Wheatley Rd. at around 7pm Thursday.

After he was pulled over, the man allegedly lied to police about his identity. The officer who was at the scene found out who he really was, though, and also learned that the man’s driver’s licence had been suspended because he was previously charged with dangerous driving and had some unpaid fines.

Police then searched the man and found drugs on him, so they arrested him and took him into custody pending a bail hearing.
