Maybe Adalina Adams was hoping the police officer who pulled her over last month wouldn’t take a close look at the operators licence she showed him.

The officer could hardly miss noticing, however, the picture on the licence didn’t match the person with whom he was talking.

The officer pulled over Adams during a traffic stop in Lethbridge last Friday when he noticed the licence plate didn’t match the vehicle Adams was driving. When she falsely identified herself and showed the officer an operator’s licence, he clearly saw the photo was of someone else.

The woman was eventually identified, and the officer discovered she was on release relating to drug charges and had been ordered not to operate a motor vehicle without a valid operator’s licence, registration and insurance.

“She had none of these,” federal Crown prosecutor Mark Klassen pointed out Tuesday in Lethbridge provincial court.

Adams pleaded guilty to single charges of failing to comply with release conditions and obstructing a peace officer. She was sentenced to five days in custody, but released after being given credit for time served since her arrest.
