A man accused of driving a car sporting a false licence plate will appear in a St. John’s courtroom Sunday.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary pulled over the car in question Saturday afternoon in the capital city. Tickets were issued to a 33-year-old man for driving without either a licence or insurance and using false plates.

According to the overnight report, the accused also owes more than $24,000 in fines. He remained in custody overnight prior to Sunday’s appearance in court.
