Turnpike incidents

State police at the Pocono barracks reported the following incidents that happened on the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike:

• Clayton Deveaux, 32, of Philadelphia, is facing charges after police conducted a traffic stop at 4:57 p.m. May 23 at mile marker 59.6 southbound in South Whitehall Township.

Police said he was initially stopped for driving 86 mph in a 70 mph zone in a 2009 Ford Fusion.

Police learned the vehicle’s registration was expired and Deveaux had an expired or suspended driver’s license. Upon inspecting the vehicle, police learned the inspection stickers that were displayed on it were forged and/or fictitious.

They said charges relating to falsified documents and summary offenses were filed against Deveaux.

They identified victims of the incident at Skinny’s Garage, Woodbury, and the Adley Automotive Group, Philadelphia.

• Police said they conducted a traffic stop on a 2018 Freightliner tractor trailer at 8:49 a.m. May 27 in Washington Township because it was believed the front license plate on the rig was listed as stolen, as reported by the victim, H & G Transportation, to the Allentown Police Department.

But police said their investigation revealed the stolen plate report was unfounded as New Jersey issues two license plates and the Freightliner was properly in possession of the plate.

• Justin Miller, 38, of Lehighton, was cited after police made a traffic stop at 7:58 a.m. June 3 at 683 Interstate 476 in Washington Township.

Police said he was driving a 2008 Volkswagen Passat that they stopped for having an expired registration and the investigation revealed he had a fictitious sticker displayed on the windshield of the vehicle. He was cited for a “forged inspection sticker.”

Police said the victim in the case is Grant Auto, Philadelphia.
