Driver fined $1,500 for forging licence plate


A man who admitted forging a licence plate was fined more than $1,500 in Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

Jahroy Simons, 32, forged documents and drove an unlicensed car without third party insurance on June 16.

Simons was caught during a traffic stop in the Shelly Bay area of Hamilton Parish after police spotted his car did not have a TCD certificate, the court heard.

Police failed to find the plate number on the TCD database. They also noticed that the numbers on the plate were made with strips of electrical tape.

Simons, from Sandys, told officers: “I was going to get it insured.”

Magistrate Tyrone Chin fined Simons $1,550 and imposed four demerit points on his licence.
