Suspended Driver Faces Charges

A Kingston woman, 28,  has been charged after Police say she attempted to avoid arrest by switching car seats when stopped by an officer.

The accused was spotted driving on Compton Street over the weekend but a records checked confirmed she was under two current driving suspensions.

The vehicle eventually parked in front of a building on Compton Street, and the officer pulled up behind.

When officers approached, there was no one behind the wheel and found the accused sitting in the back seat.

The woman was arrested and charged with 2 counts of driving while suspended, and also possession of a controlled substance,  after a small bag of suspected crystal meth was found in her possession.
