A 19-year-old Fort Wayne man was arrested by Plymouth Police on Saturday, October 28th following a traffic stop.

At about 1:20 Saturday morning Officer Schieber conducted a traffic stop near the intersection of U.S. 30 and Pioneer Drive.  During the traffic stop, the officer identified the driver as Oscar Matias. 

A second suspicious vehicle pulled up during the traffic stop, then left and returned a second time.  The driver of the second vehicle was identified as Ronald Pivaral-Cruz, 26, of Ft. Wayne. 

It was determined that both Oscar and Ronald were operating without ever receiving a driver’s license.  Both Oscar and Ronald were taken into custody and transported to the Marshall County Jail for pending criminal charges of Operator Never Licensed.
