Boardman stops car for expired plates, false information
BOARDMAN — Township police conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with expired plates Tuesday evening.
The driver said he did not have his driver’s license on him and gave a false name, according to police reports.
When police searched the vehicle, they discovered an Ohio identification card for Aron Toole, 39, of Campbell, who appeared to be the driver. When confronted with this information, Toole admitted he used his brother’s name, because his license is suspended.
Further investigation revealed that one of the passengers in the vehicle had an active warrant for her arrest in Trumbull County. When police asked if she had anything sharp on her, Jennifer Dunbar, 29, of McDonald, stated she had a syringe in her pocket.
Toole was released on traffic citations for driving under suspension, providing false information to avoid a citation, and having expired plates.
Dunbar was arrested on a charge of possession of drug-abuse instruments. After police issued Dunbar a summons for the charge, she was transferred to the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office.
