An Upper Rawdon man is facing several charges after RCMP say he fled a traffic checkpoint.

The driver was directed to pull over late Sunday morning on Highway 354 after an officer says it appeared the vehicle's licence plate sticker had expired.

Police say the driver initially complied, but took off a short time later.

After an extensive search of the area, officers say they tracked down the vehicle at a nearby home.

The 28-year-old suspect has been charged with flight from police, driving with a revoked licence, driving without insurance and driving without registration.

He's scheduled to appear in Truro Provincial Court on August 12.
