A young woman whose vehicle was pulled over Saturday afternoon is facing several theft and Highway Traffic Act related charges.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary stopped the vehicle late Saturday afternoon in the east end of St. John’s. The 18-year-old is facing 10 charges under the Highway Traffic Act, including driving with a suspended licence, driving without insurance, and driving without registration.
She also owes $17,000 in unpaid fines and is facing an additional six counts of theft related to a business located in the same area of the city where the arrest was made. The accused is expected to appear in court Sunday.
