Blind River man faces charges after traffic stop
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.
