Police stopped a car last Friday because a Massachusetts license plate was improperly displayed in the rear window of the vehicle. Additionally, a Connecticut plate showed on the rear bumper of the car.

The driver of the car told police that his name was Anthony Swisher and that he had no driver’s license or other I.D.

When asked why both Massachusetts and Connecticut plates were on the car, the female passenger in the car reportedly told police that the car belonged to her mother and was recently registered in Massachusetts.

The driver was asked out of the car and queried as to any contraband he might have. He reportedly turned over a small amount of marijuana.

The driver was taken into custody, charged with driving without a license. A fingerprint match-up identified the man as Anthony Cantinella, 21, of Worcester. He faces numerous additional charges.
