On August 18, 2016, shortly after 11:00 a.m., members of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) were on general patrol duties east of Iron Bridge.
Police observed an eastbound vehicle on Highway 17. A traffic stop was initiated. The plates attached to the vehicle did not match the description of the vehicle being driven. As a result of the investigation, the driver was found to be unlicensed and there was no insurance on the said vehicle. The vehicle was then towed.

- Drive Motor Vehicle – No Insurance, contrary to the Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act;
- Use Plates Not Authorized for Motor Vehicle, contrary to section 12(1)(d) of the Highway Traffic Act (HTA); and
- Drive Motor Vehicle – No Licence, contrary to section 32(1) of the HTA.
The accused is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Blind River on October 5, 2016.
