Granby Traffic Stop Results in Two Arrests

Police-Arrest3

GRANBY, Mass. (WGGB) – A traffic stop Tuesday morning in Granby resulted in two Ware men being placed under arrest.

State Police say that around 2:00 a.m. Tuesday, during a traffic stop on Fred Fuel Road in Granby, a trooper found that the two people inside the car both had warrants out for their arrest.

The driver of the car, identified as 37-year-old Terrence Gaskins of Ware, had had his license revoked as a habitual offender, according to State Police, and was placed under arrest and charged with failure to inspect a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle with a revoked license (habitual offender), and operating a motor vehicle with a revoked license (subsequent offense).

State Police add that Gaskins had 13 previous convictions for operating after suspension/revocation, and default warrants out for operating under the influence of liquor and failure to stop for police.

A check run by the trooper found that Gaskins’ passenger, identified as 29-year-old Wayne Burston of Ware, was wanted for two counts of felony armed robbery, assault and battery, and possession with intent to distribute a Class B substace.

Both Gaskins and Burston were booked at the Hampshire County House of Corrections and are being held pending their court appearances.

    13 previous convictions and this guy is still driving???? Does that say anything ? It tells me the penalties are no where near tough enough to instill fear into this guys brain so that he never does this again. I think a sentence of 10 years with no chance of parole might be what the doctor ordered.
