Toronto driver faces mul­ti­ple charges

The Recorder & Times (Brockville) - - NEWS -

A Toronto woman driv­ing a stolen car on High­way 401 with a stash of cannabis handy tried to flee from po­lice on Thurs­day. Leeds OPP got a call at 11:15 p.m. about an east­bound car on the 401 that turned out to have been stolen from the York Re­gion. When the Leeds OPP tried to stop it, the driver took off but other OPP ve­hi­cles pulled it over far­ther down the high­way. Laila Bhag­wan­dat, 27, faces a raft of crim­i­nal charges, in­clud­ing pos­ses­sion of a stolen mo­tor ve­hi­cle, dan­ger­ous driv­ing, flight from po­lice, breach of pro­ba­tion and pos­ses­sion of break­ing-and-en­ter­ing tools. Un­der the High­way Traf­fic Act and the Cannabis Act, she is also charged with stunt driv­ing, driv­ing with no li­cence and with driv­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle with cannabis read­ily avail­able.
