LARKSVILLE — While on routine patrol in the borough on Tuesday at about 6:30 p.m., officer Joshua Evans observed a vehicle traveling on East Main Street without inspection and emission stickers.
Evans stopped the vehicle in the area of Chestnut Street and spoke with the driver, Ottavio Paglia, of Nanticoke.
Paglia handed Evans a Pennsylvania driver’s license that the officer immediately recognized as being fake, police said.
A check of Pennsylvania Department of Transportation records showed that Paglia never had a valid driver’s license. When questioned about the fake license, Paglia told the officer that he got the license in New Jersey, police said.
Paglia’s vehicle was towed and he was advised that numerous charges will be filed against him, police said.
