Stratford Driver Faces Multiple Charges

A 27-year-old Stratford woman faces numerous charges after a traffic stop in Huron County.

It was just after 7pm on Sunday when a Huron County OPP officer observed a car travelling eastbound on Cranbrook Rd. near Brussels Line.

Upon stopping the driver, the officer determined the novice driver was not accompanied by a qualified driver and noticed the attached licence plates and validation sticker affixed to the plate were stolen.

The driver was subsequently arrested and a search inside the vehicle uncovered a stun gun, which is a prohibited weapon.

Further checks revealed the vehicle was not insured and the driver was failing to comply with terms of her probation sentence.

The female driver faces a long list of charges including possession of a prohibited weapon, failing to comply with a probation order as well as using a plate not authorized for the vehicle, and being a class G1 licence holder unaccompanied by a qualified driver.

She has a court appearance scheduled for November 24 at the Ontario Court of Justice in Goderich.
