(SOUTH HURON, ON) - An early morning traffic stop last week near Huron Park has resulted in a combined 10 charges being laid against a driver and a passenger.

On Thursday, July 26, 2018 at approximately 8:15 a.m. a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer watched as a suspended driver entered into a sports utility vehicle and proceeded to drive away travelling northbound on Airport Line from Huron Park.

The investigating officer followed the vehicle a short distance whereupon he proceeded to stop the vehicle and speak with the occupants. Subsequent checks on the driver confirmed he was driving while suspended and without insurance on his vehicle. Perry COWAN, 60 years of age, from South Huron was charged with two counts of Drive Under Suspension, Drive Motor Vehicle Without Insurance & Drive Motor Vehicle with No Licence. He was later released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for September 18, 2018 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Goderich.

Additionally, a search of one of the passengers resulted in police locating and seizing two prohibited weapons (brass knuckles & throwing knife). The passenger also obstructed police by identifying himself as his cousin in an attempt to avoid detection because he was wanted by two other police services in Ontario. It wasn't until during the booking process that officers determined the true identity of the male.

Shane CAMPBELL, 31 years of age, from London has been charged with two counts of Unauthorized Possession of a Weapon, Personation with Intent, Obstruct Peace Officer and two counts of Fail to Comply with Recognizance. He remains in custody with a video court appearance scheduled for August 1, 2018 at the Ontario Court of Justice.
