A 19-year-old Alexandria man faces multiple charges for allegedly driving a van without a license, providing a false name to police and drug possession.
Police observed the suspect allegedly driving the wrong way down the 3800 block of Old Dominion Boulevard in the city’s Arlandria neighborhood on Sunday, Dec. 5.
Police used emergency lights to get the suspect to pull over, and he parked illegally and then got out of the van, according to a search warrant affidavit.
Police then said the suspect provided a false name and date of birth. The man told police that his girlfriend owned the car and that he was dropping off his cousin, who sat in the front passenger seat. The suspect had no identification and admitted to not having a driver’s license. He then left the vehicle before police could get more information.
Police called in a wrecker to tow the van to the city’s impound lot, and during an inventory search found 20 to 40 pills of suspected oxycodone in a plastic baggie, a smoking apparatus made from a water bottle and burned pieces of aluminum foil.
The suspect was arrested and charged with driving without a license, driving on the wrong side of the street, possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and identity theft. He goes to court on Jan. 14, 2022.
