Patrolwoman Kayleigh T. Cooper was on a fixed post on George Waterman Road on the evening of July 17 when she observed a vehicle with a Rhode Island registration that had a Massachusetts inspection sticker affixed to it.

Cooper said she detained the vehicle and spoke to the operator, identified as Darison Francisco Rodriguez, 20, 103 Mercy St., Providence. Cooper said Rodriguez told her that he did not have a driver’s license and the car’s registration was suspended.

A further check confirmed the registration was suspended. It also confirmed that Rodriguez has no license and had been charged with driving without a license on two previous occasions. Cooper also found that Rodriguez was wanted on an active Sixth Division District Court bench warrant.

Rodriguez was arrested on a charge of driving without a license, third or subsequent offense, and transported to Johnston Police headquarters for processing. He was additionally cited for violation of inspection laws and operating with a suspended registration.

Rodriguez was arraigned before a justice of the peace and released on $1,000 personal recognizance with a summons to appear in Third Division District Court on July 29. He was also arraigned on the bench warrant and released on a $1,000 bail with surety until a court date set for July 31.
