Occurrence Type: Minor Traffic Infraction Leads to Multiple Criminal Charges
Occurrence #: BA16015172
Date: Monday, March 28, 2016 – 12:10am

Just after midnight Monday morning, members of the Barrie Police’s Community Oriented Response Unit initiated a traffic stop on Mary Street after a vehicle almost backed into their patrol car from a private driveway.

The occupants of the vehicle immediately exited the car and attempted to walk away. The driver, a 29-year-old Angus male, did not provide a Driver’s License but provided a verbal ID using his brother’s information.

The passenger, a 27-year-old Barrie woman also gave a false name and birthdate.

The officers continued their investigation and determined the correct identities of both parties. The couple had likely tried to hide their true names as the male was on conditions not to be in contact with the female.

Additionally, in September 2015 the male had been convicted for Over 80, and was not to be driving at all – and with good reason – officers located open alcohol and a quantity of suspected crack cocaine in the vehicle.

As a result of [his] poor choices the male was charged with:

  • 5 counts of Fail To Comply – Probation
  • Driving While Disqualified
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Obstruct Police
  • Identity Fraud

and his girlfriend was charged with her own three counts of Fail to Comply- Probation, one count of Obstruct Police and one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!! once the male was returned to the Barrie Police Station he was positively identified as the same male that had driven through a construction barricade and down a closed road in August 2015. At the time he was charged after nearly striking construction workers and the officer working in the area. He had again provided his brother’s identity and escaped consequences…until today. Four more charges for Driving Disqualified, Obstruct Police, Identity Fraud and Breach of probation were added to the already lengthy list of charges the male will now face.

Both parties were held for Bail.
