On November 8, 2016, I, Officer Tim Van Nostrand, was on duty and assigned to uniform patrol in marked cruiser East 1. At approximately 9:00am, I observed a gray Nissan Murano make a right turn from Pinckney St onto Washington St at a high rate of speed (both public ways). I queried the license plate through the registry of motor vehicles. The result of my query showed the plate belonging to a 2004 Honda Accord sedan color red.
I activated my emergency equipment, and stopped the vehicle on Joy St at Washington St (public ways). I identified the operator as Raveena Jaghoo via a Massachusetts Identification card. Jaghoo stated she just purchased this car, and was using it to drive to Cambridge. She provided me with a bill of sale dated October 5, 2016. Jaghoo admitted that she knew she could not legally operate a motor vehicle because she only had her learner’s permit.
I placed Jaghoo under arrest for Unlicensed Operation (90/10), Attaching plates (90/23/k), Uninsured motor vehicle (90/34J), Unregistered motor vehicle (90/9), and Failure to inspect (90/20). Pat’s Tow responded to tow the vehicle, and I seized both license plates. Citations R7639181 and R7639182 were issued to Jaghoo.
Raveena was transported to the station by Officer Pavao in unit 200, where she was booked in the usual manner by Lt. Mulcahy.
