WINCHENDON – On Wednesday, June 21, at about 1:00 a.m., Sergeant Joseph Champney of the Winchendon Police Department was travelling behind a white GMC pickup truck with Massachusetts plates on Front Street.
“I performed a RMV query and it indicated the registered owner, Ricardo Quijosaca Quishpi’s license had been suspended for previous OUI,” wrote Sgt. Champney in his Narrative for the incident. “I initiated a motor vehicle stop as the vehicle pulled into the Cumberland Farms parking lot.”
Ricardo, 34, is a resident of Endicott Street in Worcester.
Sgt. Champney said that after telling Ricardo the reason for the stop, he identified himself with his New York license, which also happened to be suspended. He then explained that his passenger, Marco Quijosaca Quishpi, was licensed, however, he had assumed operation of the vehicle because Marco was fatigued.
Sgt. Champney said he checked Marco’s license status and found that it was active.
Marco assumed operation of the vehicle before leaving.
“Ricardo was polite and respectful throughout my encounter with him,” Sgt. Champney added.
Ricardo was given a citation for Operation of Motor Vehicle After Suspension (OUI).
Disclaimer: If you are wondering why the incident in this story was from June (you’re an a$$hole that doesn’t understand my business model, just kidding🃏), that’s because I had to file FOIA request(s) to get the court documents for the incident. FOIAs are time consuming.
