(SOUTH HURON, ON) - A Sarnia resident has been charged with a number of criminal offences following a traffic stop that took place in Exeter over the weekend.

At approximately 2:20 p.m. on Sunday, September 23, 2018 a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer observed a pickup truck travelling on Thames Road without a front licence plate. Upon stopping the suspect vehicle the investigating officer spoke with the male driver.

The driver initially provided a false name to the investigating officer and also failed to provide a valid insurance card for the pickup. Upon further investigation the driver provided his actual name and it was determined the male was driving with a suspended driver's licence. The driver was subsequently placed under arrest and searched. The search revealed the driver was in possession of a small quantity of marihuana.

As a result, Brandon WESTFALL, 34 years of age, from Sarnia has been charged with the following offences:

Personation with Intent to Avoid Arrest
Driving While Disqualified
Possession of a Schedule II Substance - Cannabis Marihuana
Driving While Under Suspension
Fail to Have Insurance Card
Drive Motor Vehicle Fail to Display Two Plates

He has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for November 22, 2018 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Exeter. His motor vehicle was also impounded for 45 days under the Vehicle Impoundment Program (VIP).
