Officers from the Plymouth Police Department arrested several individuals last week for driving without a driver’s license. 

On Tuesday, February 6th Officer Fisher stopped 26-year-old Pedro Alexander Guevara Chirinos of Plymouth in the Collins and Company parking lot at about 7:45 in the evening.  He was pulled over because the license plate was expired. 

During the traffic stop Officer Fisher determined that Chirinos had never received a license.  He was booked into the Marshall County Jail for the charges and less than an hour later released on bond.

Officer Fisher then stopped a vehicle for a moving violation in the Walmart parking lot just before 9 p.m.  The driver, 38-year-old Franklin Jose Banegas Padilla of Plymouth was taken into custody and transported to the county jail.  He was released on bond just before midnight. 

Officer Schieber of the Plymouth Police Department initiated a traffic stop at 7:40 Wednesday evening at Jefferson and Eighth Streets because the driver failed to dim his bright headlights.

The driver, 26-year-old Yesson Sanchez-Mendieta of Plymouth was found not to have ever received a driver’s license.  An hour after he was booked into the jail, he was released on a cash bond.

On Friday, February 9th Officer Schieber stopped a vehicle at Michigan Street and Hillcrest Avenue at 5:30 in the morning after witnessing multiple moving violations.  The driver was identified as 27-year-old Luis Lamus Guiterez of Plymouth.  It was determined that he had never been issued a driver’s license.  Luis Lamus-Guiterez was taken into custody and booked into the Marshall County Jail.
