Po­lice ar­rest man wanted on war­rant

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — The past may have fi­nally caught up with a New­found­land driver who po­lice say is on the hook for a hefty $26,000 in fines. They say the 36-year-old man was pulled over dur­ing a rou­tine traf­fic stop in St. John’s at about 8:30 p.m. Tues­day.

They say the man gave of­fi­cers a false name and did not have a valid driver’s li­cence or in­sur­ance.

Po­lice say the driver was even­tu­ally iden­ti­fied, lead­ing to the dis­cov­ery that he was wanted on a war­rant.

He was ar­rested and taken into cus­tody for a court ap­pear­ance to face charges un­der the High­way Traf­fic Act.

His ve­hi­cle was seized.
