Mt Pulaski Police Report If Police Chief Lynn Freer knows that your driving privi- leges have been suspended, it is best that you not drive by him in your car. After the traffic stop, the driver read- ily admitted he knew that he was aware that he was suspended. Arrested, he was taken to the county jail. The driving record shows that the suspension started Novem- ber 1, 2013 and on Septem- ber 21, 2014 he was arrested for driving on that suspen- sion. Being a continuing sus- pension, this arrest will be added to the record. Ofc. Doug McCarmey knew the driver of the car and knew the driver had a license that has been expired for over two years due to owing fines and the State of Illinois not renewing the license until those fines are paid. During the traffic stop the driver did have proof of cur- rent insurance for the vehicle and admitted to not only not having a license but also to having been arrested for this in the recent past. So this arrest and trip to the county jail came as no surprise. Ofc. Doug McCartney con- tinued to meet people that he knew during traffic stops. This time the license plate on the vehicle was expired and that coincided with the driver being currently suspended. The driver said she was pretty sure that the problems with the driver's license had been taken care of. The problems weren't. Upping the ante, the driver provided an insurance card that had been expired for five months. Double-check- ing the insurance card, the insurance company reported the policy had expired and had been canceled. There was an arrest. There was that trip to the county jail. Ofc. Doug McCartney con- ducted a traffic stop after wit- nessing the vehicle run up onto the curb while attempt- ing to make a turn at the comer of Vine in Jefferson. Wafting from inside the vehi- de was the odor of alcohol that led to some questions. Some revolved around the half full and cold to the touch beer can in the drivers seat. A passenger in the vehicle stated that the beer was actu- ally his and he received the winning city ordinance viola- tion notice for illegal posses- sion of alcohol. No trip to the county jail this time around, the driver passed the field sobriety test. So the run up on the curb was just chalked up to poor driving. Police Chief Lynn Freer routinely ran a vehicle reg- istration through the Secre- tary of State on September 9, 2015 and found that the driver of the car had been suspended on September 5, 2015. Besides the four-day- old suspension, the driver did not have "insurance for the vehide. Another arrest, another trip to the county jail. Ofc. Doug McCarmey took a report that a child's bicycle had been stolen. After receiv- ' ing the description of the bicycle, Ofc McCarmey was able to reunite bicycle and owner - the bike having just been found that morning by a : Mount Pulaski resident.
