Hartford man allegedly drove without license, insurance

WESTPORT—A Hartford man driving without an operator’s license or car insurance was caught speeding on the Sherwood Island Connector Dec. 4, police said.

Officers conducting a speed check on the Connector clocked Luis Garcia-Perez, 30, traveling 62 mph in a 40-mph zone. Police stopped Garcia-Perez and investigated his car, at which point officers discovered he was driving without a license, lacked car insurance, and had a car registration plate belonging to a different vehicle.

Garcia-Perez was charged with misuse of marker plate, speeding, failure of insurance coverage to meet minimum requirements, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, and operating a motor vehicle without a license. Garcia-Perez was released after posting a $500 cash bond ahead of a Dec. 14 scheduled appearance in Norwalk Superior Court.
