A 45-year-old from Dąbrowa Górnicza (Śląskie Voivodeship), arrested for road inspection, gave the policemen his brother’s details so that they would not find out what was on their conscience. But they know him well. Only for the lack of a driving license they caught him for the eighth time. On June 1, they found drugs with him again and, for the first time, weapons. The prosecutor applied police surveillance against him.
On June 1, policemen from Dąbrowa Górnicza on Poniatowskiego Street detained a Ford driver for inspection. The man did not have any documents with him. He gave the policemen the details of – as it turned out, his brother. But he didn’t fool them.
– He is 45-year-old Jakub P. All the policemen in the city know him. He started his criminal “career” in 2008 – says Deputy Commissioner Bartłomiej Osmólski, spokesman for the police in Dąbrowa Górnicza.
Detained forbidden to drive, intoxicated, with drugs
According to police information, in 2008 Jakub P. was driving under the influence of intoxicants and his driving license was withdrawn. He had done nothing to retrieve them and continued to drive. He was caught doing it in 2016. It was the first time that he was banned from driving any motor vehicles.
Another ban was imposed on him in 2019 – for driving intoxicated. Besides, he had drugs with him. In the same year, he was prosecuted for burglary.
In 2020, despite the ban, he was stopped while driving a car, and the following year he was stopped in an avalanche: in March, July, October and December. Drugs were revealed with him again.
In the car, amphetamines and weapons
On June 1, P. had five active driving bans. In his car, policemen found nearly 90 portions of amphetamines and two guns. – One is an air rifle. The second, in our opinion, is a firearm that requires a permit. But it has to be confirmed by an expert – says Osmólski.
If the 45-year-old had a gun illegally, investigators will be able to apply to court for pre-trial detention due to the risk of a high penalty. So far, the prosecutor has applied a bail and police supervision to the man. The 45-year-old has to appear at the police station four times a week and so far – as Osmólski says – is fulfilling this obligation.
– We are doing everything to eliminate this driver from the roads of our city – assures the spokesman of the police.
