SPARTA, NJ – A routine traffic stop ended with a Sussex man in custody. On December 5 around 12:45 p.m. Officer Steven Guido stopped a black Hyundai Elantra on Route 15 north after seeing the passenger ashing his cigarette out of the car window, police report.
Neither the driver nor the passenger had identification but Guido was able to confirm the driver had a valid New York drivers license. The same could not be said for the passenger. He told Guido his name was Timthy Born but Dispatch was unable to find any information on that name, police said.
A check of the driver’s background revealed he had been arrested in a nearby town with a passenger named Christopher Delguadio, 30. Guido confirmed the man’s identity by confirming a tattoo of “JD” on his neck, according to police.
When confronted, Delguadio admitted he gave the officer a false name because he had outstanding warrants. The warrants were confirmed in Edgewater and Kinnelon, police said.
Delguadio was taken into custody and brought to Sparta Police Department Headquarters where he was processed and charged with hindering and throwing debris from a motor vehicle. Edgewater and Kinnelon gave new court dates for their warrants. He was released with a court date for Sparta.
