A routine traffic stop led to the arrest of Bridgeport resident Patrick Kennedy last Friday night in Westport.
Kennedy, 47, was stopped on the Sherwood Island Connector because the car's rear license plate was not illuminated, police said. A computer check revealed that the car's registration was suspended for lack of insurance and that Kennedy's license was suspended.
The officer also noticed the front license plate on Kennedy's car was different than the one on the back. A check on the front plate revealed it was stolen out of Norwalk, police said. Kennedy was charged with sixth-degree larceny, improper marker lamps, misuse of plates, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, insurance below minimums, operating under suspension and possession of abandoned markers. His bond was set at $2,000 and he was given a court date of May 2.
