Male caught driving with 22 prohibition orders

A male on parole with 22 prohibition orders to prevent him from driving has been arrested for doing just that — driving.

Police received information about an orange Corvette driving erratically on Taunton Road in Oshawa on Tuesday, Nov. 10 around 5:20 p.m.

Later, an officer observed the vehicle speeding westbound on Highway 2 at Garrard Road in Whitby. The vehicle did not stop at the red light and the vehicle was not pursued due to safety concerns.

Further investigation identified the driver as a 43-year-old male, who is the subject of 22 drive disqualifications and a federal parolee.

On the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 11, the male was located getting out of a cab while returning to a residence in Lindsay. He was arrested by Durham police without incident.

He has been charged with 22 counts of operation while prohibited, dangerous operation and driving a motor vehicle while suspended. He was held for a bail hearing.
