Motorist with two fake driving licenses arrested in the Midlands
A motorist with two fake driving licenses has been arrested in the Midlands.
Gardai on patrol on Saturday night in Laois stopped a vehicle displaying an altered insurance disc.
The driver produced a false driving license and a search of the vehicle discovered a second false driving licence also being used by the driver.
The driver was arrested and their true identity was verified at Portlaoise Garda Station before they were charged to appear before Portlaoise District Court. The vehicle was seized.
A Brazilian meat factory worker who was found at the wheel with an out of date driving licence was last week told by Judge Seamus Hughes to “bring a box of fillet steaks” with him when his case returns before the courts later this year.
