Blind River man faces charges af­ter traf­fic stop

The Standard (Elliot Lake) - - LAW -

On Oct. 17, mem­bers from the East Al­goma OPP were on pa­trol du­ties in Blind River.

Shortly af­ter 11:30 a.m., an of­fi­cer ob­served a car be­side him on Caus­ley Street with a tem­po­rary val­i­da­tion per­mit on the plate. The of­fi­cer queried the plate which re­turned the plate as ex­pired and a traf­fic stop was ini­ti­ated.

The driver sur­ren­dered an in­sur­ance card with no ve­hi­cles at­tached to the in­sur­ance slip. A call was placed to the in­sur­ance com­pany, which re­vealed the male driver’s in­sur­ance had been can­celled months prior.

As a re­sult of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, Wil­liam Wool­ley, 65 years of age from Blind River, was charged with: op­er­ate mo­tor ve­hi­cle with­out in­sur­ance; and with drive mo­tor ve­hi­cle, no cur­rently val­i­dated per­mit.

The ac­cused is sched­uled to ap­pear in Blind River Court on Nov. 21.
