A 37-year-old male showed up for his weekend sentence at HMP drunk on Friday. He was charged with three breaches of court orders and kept for morning court.
The driver of a vehicle stopped on Mt. Scio Road was found to owe $5000 in fines. The 26 year old male driver was charged with operating a vehicle without a license, operating a vehicle without insurance, and operating a vehicle with expired license plates. He was held for court and the vehicle was impounded.
