RCMP

Police say a 28-year-old Upper Rawdon man is facing charges after fleeing a traffic checkpoint.

The RCMP were conducting a checkpoint in Upper Rawdon late Sunday morning when a driver was directed to stop by an officer who noted the man's licence plate had an expired sticker. 

Police say the driver pulled over and stopped, but fled the scene a short time later. 

Following extensive patrols of the area, RCMP located the vehicle at a nearby home and arrested the driver.

He's due in court August 12 on charges of flight from police, driving while licence revoked, driving without insurance, and driving without registration.
