SAN RAFAEL (KRON) — San Rafael police caught two people breaking the law as they were leaving the Marin County Superior Courthouse.
A sting at the courthouse targeted people who drove from court despite having their licenses suspended because of DUIs.
Monday, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., officers staked out six offenders who had been told by a judge not to drive, or who had their license suspended.
Of the six people followed from court to their cars, two of them got behind the wheel and started to drive away before being stopped by police.
The two arrested were Martin Prior, 46, of San Rafael and Keyanie Arleese Joseph, 25, of Vacaville.
Prior was cited and released for driving with a suspended license for DUI.
His vehicle was impounded for 30 day.
Joseph was also stopped simply for the license, but during a search of her car, officers found suspected marijuana and forged credit cards.
Joseph was booked into jail and her vehicle was also impounded for 30 day.
This sting was funded by a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
