Let's hear it for routine traffic stops!!!!

by Angeline Booher / October 16, 2007 4:20 AM PDT
A man wanted in the videotaped sexual assault of a toddler has been arrested, according to police in Nevada.
Chester Arthur Stiles, 37, was arrested following a routine traffic stop around 7 p.m. (10 p.m. ET) Monday.

Henderson, Nevada, police Officer Mike Dye said he pulled over the white Buick Century Stiles was driving because it did not have a license plate.

Dye said he became suspicious after the driver gave him an expired California driver's license with a photo that did not match his appearance.

May children in the future be safe from this (expletive deleted).

Considering that some folk said he wouldn't be caught without a fight... I'm glad he surrendered peacefully.

A fugitive driving with no license plate?
by Steven Haninger / October 16, 2007 5:28 AM PDT

He put up no resistance and said he was tired of running. Sounds like he could have set him self up deliberately for arrest.

Traffic stops have been the bane of law enforcement as they never know what they're up against. As for the missing license plate, that was also the case when Timony McVay was stopped after the Oklahoma City bombing within hours of the fact for the same reason, a missing license plate. You just never know... -----Willy

I once saw a curious thing
by Dragon / October 17, 2007 2:21 AM PDT

I was in a strip mall walking to a store. I happened to look at the license plate of one of the cars that was parked there, then looked at the plate in front. They were not the same. I told my parents (this was a long time ago) and they just brushed it off, saying they probably just forgot to change one of them.

Nice try, anyway.
by drpruner / October 18, 2007 12:03 PM PDT

I'm guessing two possibilities:
A crook who stole and changed only one plate.

Someone who kept the front plate as a souvenir of a former home. (Not all states require front plates.)

Good work, Cops!

The bad news: He's just one of thousands and thousands. Sad

More good work: The Canadian in the Far East who disguised his face in his pix; un-disguised by Interpol. And if he did go to Thailand, the government there is strict on these guys.
