On Monday, February 18, 2019, shortly before noon, police on proactive patrol observed a silver Mercedes Benz travelling eastbound on Rymal Road, approaching Nebo Road. The vehicle conducted several movements which drew the attention of the officer. As police initiated a traffic stop, the vehicle continued onward and then entered a parking lot. A request was made for the driver to surrender the appropriate documents. He failed to produce the documents but verbally provided a name. Through investigation, police learned the name provided was false. It was determined the driver’s licence had been suspended for unpaid fines and a previous violation for driving while suspended. The driver was also bound by a court order with conditions of no association with a specified person and not to be in control of an automobile.
Also in the vehicle was a passenger. Police learned the passenger was the person specified in the driver’s court order. The passenger himself was bound by a court order with a no association condition that included the driver. Both males were arrested and transported to police custody. They were held for a bail hearing and will in court on Tuesday, February 19, 2019.
