(SOUTH HURON, ON) - A 27-year-old from South Huron will be making a trip to court later this summer to answer to five charges he is facing following a traffic stop that took place this weekend.
Just after 2:30 p.m. a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer was conducting patrols in Huron Park when the officer observed a small SUV travelling on Airport Line with unauthorized licence plates. The driver of the SUV pulled into a convenience store parking lot and when he exited his vehicle he was approached by the officer.
Upon speaking with the male driver and completing some checks it was determined the driver was also driving with a suspended driver's licence, unauthorized licence plates and in contravention of his Class G1 driver's licence for failing to be accompanied by a qualified driver. Further, police determined the SUV was uninsured and was deemed to be an unfit vehicle.
As a result, 27-year-old Ryan ROWCLIFFE from South Huron has been charged with the following offences: Use Plate Not Authorized for Vehicle, Driving While Under Suspension, Class G1 Licence Holder - Unaccompanied by Qualified Driver, Operate Unsafe Vehicle and Owner Operate Motor Vehicle On a Highway - No Insurance. He will have to attend Provincial Offences Court in Goderich on September 4, 2018.
