Traf­fic stop leads to 16 charges

St. Thomas Times-Journal - - LOCAL NEWS -

A 29-year-old Lon­don man faces more than a dozen charges af­ter po­lice stopped a ve­hi­cle that didn’t have proper li­cence plates. Of­fi­cers pulled over the ve­hi­cle on Oct. 3 on Ch­est­nut Street af­ter they no­ticed the plates weren’t legally reg­is­tered. They took the driver into cus­tody af­ter dis­cov­er­ing his li­cence was sus­pended, po­lice said. When of­fi­cers searched the ve­hi­cle, they found one gram of crys­tal metham­phetamine, stolen prop­erty and cheque print­ing equip­ment. In­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve the man was print­ing replica cheques from a Lon­don busi­ness and get­ting friends to cash them, po­lice said. Po­lice said the li­cence plates were seized and the ve­hi­cle was towed to a com­pound. A Lon­don man is charged with four counts of draw­ing doc­u­ments with­out author­ity, two counts of pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty un­der $5,000, drug pos­ses­sion, two counts of breach of con­di­tions and seven driv­ing of­fences.
