Man arrested for driving while prohibited

Last Saturday night at roughly 9:39pm, officers were making patrols on Joyce Avenue when a blue Dodge Caravan was seen speeding up and attempting to evade police. 

They stopped the vehicle and after a records check, found that the 46-year-old male driver was prohibited from driving. 

He was arrested and released with a court date in September. 

His vehicle was also impounded for seven days under the Motor Vehicle Act.
