Police Report By Mike Lakin Ofc. Kyle Veech observed a Lincoln Navigator with an expired license plate tag. During the resulting stop, it was dis- covered :the driver had been suspended for three months. Citations were issued for driv- ing while license suspended and operating a vehicle with an expired license plate tag. Always a good idea to get that annual license tag on the car within the time allowed, especially when don't want to attract atten- tion to that other problem you have. Chief Lynn Freer conducted a traffic stop after a computer check showed one of the owners had a suspended license and the license had expired over two years ago. The driver (owner) provided a valid insurance card and an Illinois ID. The ID card had coincidentally been issued one month after the statutory summary suspension of her license took place. On being informed that she was stopped for driving while suspended for a previous DUI, she said the suspension period was expired and that she was fighting the DUI. All in all, that does not permit you to drive without a license. Arrested for driving suspended, the driver was aiso advised her vehicle was being s-eized because she was driv- ing suspended during a DUI suspension. The automobile involved was a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix. Chief Lynn Freer randomly ran a license plate on a vehicle on S. Washington St. and found the owner to be suspended. During the traffic stop, it was discovered the driver was not the suspended owner of the vehicle. But unfortunately, the driver was also suspended. The driver's license had expired in August 2013. The driver was taken into custody for driving without a valid license, having been expired for more than one year. Wonder at what point the light bulb went offfor the driver that if the owner hadn't been suspended there wouldn't have been that confounded arrest. Ofc. Todd Bauer conducted a traffic stop after noticing the license plate light on the vehi- cle was burned out. During the stop, the driver was told why the stop was made and the driver did produce a valid drivers license. This is where it gets interesting, because after asking the passenger for an ID, it was found the passenger was wanted on a warrant out of McLean County. This resulted in the passenger's arrest. In this case, life took that unfor{unae turn because of circumstances so totally not within his controi. 16 Et lID It O tO 0 OI Honeybears floor action during the "Turn Up The Cure" game.
