North Bay OPP says a licence plate violation turned into multiple charges for a Bonfield resident.

Officers say while on patrol Thursday evening in Mattawa, they stopped the car for a licence plate violation. During the stop, they found the driver had been suspended since 2004, and a prohibited driver since 2006.

As a result, the 36-year-old has been charged with:

  • Operation While Prohibited
  • Drive Motor Vehicle – No Currently Validated Permit
  • Use Plate Not Authorized for Vehicle

Officers say the accused has been released. They will answer to their charges before court in Mattawa on September 2.

The vehicle has been impounded for 45 days.
