VEAZIE, Maine — A local woman was summoned on aggravated forgery and motor vehicle-related charges after a traffic stop Saturday evening on Chase Road.
Danielle Celino, 23, initially came to the attention of Veazie police Officer Jacob Ferland about 6:30 p.m. because the car she was driving had inadequate headlights, Officer Dain Bryant, also of the Veazie Police Department, said Monday.
After pulling Celino over, Ferland determined that her driver’s license wasn’t active and charged her with operating after suspension. After looking her vehicle over, he also charged Celino with operating a motor vehicle with four inadequate tires.
At least three of the tires were described as “completely smooth, with no tread,” Bryant said.
The aggravated forgery charge was the result of Celino initially identifying herself to the police officer as her sister, Bryant said, citing a police report. He said that according to the report, she signed a summons that was made out in her sister’s name.
An earlier version of this story contained an error. Danielle Celino was summoned on charges of aggravated forgery, operating after suspension and operating a motor vehicle with four defective tires. She was not arrested.
