RCMP issue three no Insurance violation tickets in nine days in Lakeland

Three no insurance violation tickets were issued during nine days in the Lakeland Region. Police are reminding residents that if you drive with no insurance you will eventually be caught.

The RCMP conducted a traffic stop on September 25, where a 31-year-old male from Glendon was charged for no insurance. The second stop occurred on September 26, says Sgt. Sarah Parke from the Bonnyville RCMP.

“When RCMP members on patrol recognized a local 55-year-old male who was wanted on warrants driving a minivan in town,” Sgt. Sarah Parke told Lakeland Connect. “The male fled from police in his vehicle to his house where he hid from RCMP.”

Sgt. Parke says, a warrant to enter his residence was granted and members entered and arrested him without further incident.

“The warrants were executed and the male was additionally charged with driving without Insurance,” Sgt. Parke said. “And the third incident occurred on October 3, when a St. Paul Traffic Services member conducted a traffic stop with a vehicle that had a licence plate that wasn’t registered.”

Sgt. Parke says a further investigation revealed the vehicle was not insured either.

“The Driver was not able to provide ID and was further arrested when a weapon was located beside his driver’s seat,” Sgt. Parke said. “Furthermore, his 29-year-old female passenger was wanted on Warrants out of Cochrane and was also arrested.”

The 29-year-old male from Primate, Saskatchewan was charged with Driving without Insurance, Driving without Registration, and Misuse of Licence Plate.
