Ontario Provincial Police have laid criminal charges after finding a vehicle with expired licence plate stickers late Wednesday night.
The OPP said in a news release that at about 10 p.m., an officer on patrol spotted a vehicle with the expired stickers being driven on Centre Street in Napanee. The driver was pulled over and she provided her driver’s licence.
The licence was for a G1 driver, but her passenger was not a qualified driver. OPP said they also found a number of illegal tobacco products and a butterfly knife — a prohibited weapon.
The OPP have charged Stephanie Marie Heaslip, 30, of no fixed address with unauthorized possession of a weapon and being a G1 licence holder unaccompanied by a qualified driver.
Her passenger, Shane Murray Taylor, 36, also of no fixed address, has been charged by the OPP with unauthorized possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon while prohibited.
Both were held in custody to await bail court in Napanee on Thursday.
