55-Year-Old Brampton Man Charged After Allegedly Pretending to be 26
A 55-year-old man from Brampton has been charged with several offences after allegedly impersonating a 26-year-old while driving.
What started as a fail to stop for a red light escalated pretty quickly.
According to the Caledon detachment of the OPP, on Jan. 3 at 7:38 a.m., an officer saw a driver in a red 2017 Ford Explorer fail to stop for a red light at Hurontario St. and Mayfield Rd.
Upon conducting the traffic stop, the 55-year-old driver — who had previously been disqualified from driving — allegedly identified himself to police as a 26-year-old male with a valid driver’s license.
Dalwara Khela, 55, of Brampton has been charged with personation with intent to avoid arrest, prosecution or obstructing justice (identity fraud), obstructing a peace officer, two counts of driving while disqualified under a court order, failing to comply with recognizance, and failing to stop at a red light.
Khela is set to appear in court in Orangeville on Jan. 8 to answer to the charges.
