A 46-year-old man from Carbonear kept police busy on May 5 after he was arrested twice for operating a vehicle while prohibited from doing so.

The first incident took place at about 7:30 a.m., when officers from the Trinity Conception District RCMP performed a vehicle stop on Route 75 near North River.

It was discovered the driver had a suspended licence and $15,625 in unpaid fines. He also had no registration and no insurance on his car.

The driver was arrested under the Highway Traffic Act and faces the following charges: driving while suspended, operating a motor vehicle with no registration, and operating a motor vehicle with no insurance.

The driver’s car was seized and towed.

A little over 12 hours later, officers again performed a vehicle stop, this time on Route 70 in Salmon Cove.

The same man was behind the wheel, though this time it was a truck that had a valid registration and insurance.

The man was again charged with driving while suspended.

He is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Harbour Grace on July 4.
