The driver had a valid insur- ance card and presented an Illinois ID card. The driver was of course unaware they were driving sus- pended - an interesting response when all they had in their posses- sion was that ID card. In the end, the driver was arrested, and the department seized the 2005 Pon- tiac Grand Prix. The Grand Prix was subsequently being sold at auction. Chief Lynn Freer made the arrest. A traffic stop was made because the vehicle was registered to a sus- pended driver. The driver was not the registered owner.

(217) 735-3573 FRIENDLY SERVICE SINCE 1985! JOYCE DEARTH BC -HIS 12 stated the vehicle was being pur- chased from the registered owner. Unfortunately, this driver had let their license expire over a year ago. The driver was arrested and a family member drove the van home. Chief Lynn Freer made the arrest. The traffic stop was made because the license plate light was burned-out or burnt-out depend- ing on your linguistic preference. The driver had a valid license and insurance and all the officer did was advise her to get a new bulb. But you have to feel for her passenger. The passenger had a warrant for his arrest out of McLean County. The warrant was confirmed and the passenger was taken into custody. If not for that burned out or burnt- out license plate light, the passen- ger wQuld not have enjoyed the environs of the Logan County jail. Officer Todd Bauer made the arrest. Knowing the driver didn'thave a valid license, a traffic stop was made. The driver when asked for a license presented not one but two - a Mexican driver's license and an International driver's license, but no Illinois drivers license. The Mexican license expired in 2013. The International drivers license was not valid in Illinois. The driver "asked if he could "just get a ticket." He was taken into custody. The driver could not provide a Social Security number at the jail and stated he didn't have one. There is a further investigation concerning the Intemational drivers license. Chief Lynn Freer made the arrest. When the bloom comes off the rose of romance sometimes the police are called. Officer Kyle Veech responded to a call conceming the ex-girlfriend who had locked the E now ex-boyfriend's property in the trunk of her car. The ex-girlfriend said she couldn't return the prop- erty - she couldn't find the to open the trunk. Remarkably the trunk opened when the release button was pushed inside the car. w And there was a trunk stuffed with '< IO "not her stuff." The ex-boyfriend removed his possessions from the o trunk and matters were settled, ol There was an additional question about a substance found in a pill bottle that may or may not have belonged to the ex-girlfriend. But since the pill bottle was not found in her possession there was naught to do, but let her go. The driver of the vehicle was not wearing a seatbelt. But that was the least of the driver's problems. A check showed the vehicle registra- tion had expired in June 2014 and the owner was suspended. During the stop it was also found the driver did not have the vehicle insured. Arrested, the driver received cita- tions for not wearing a seatbelt, driving suspended, no valid regis- tration, and operating an uninsured vehicle. He pretty much failed to do anything that would have allowed him to drive that car. Officer Todd Bauer made the arrest.
