Suspended driver has car impounded; caught hours later nabbing food: police

(Newswatch Group/Bill Kingston, File)

BROCKVILLE – A man in his 50s had a run-in with Brockville law enforcement twice in the space of four hours on Wednesday.

Police say they stopped a vehicle on King Street and found that the 53-year-old driver has been disqualified for previous driving convictions. His car was impounded for 45 days.

Brockville police were then called to the Food Basics “for the same 53-year-old” man – now on foot.

He was allegedly putting items in his backpack before leaving the store.

The accused was charged with trespassing and released.
