A routine motor vehicle stop led Washington Township Police to an arrest warrant for a man who allegedly had sexual contact with a minor, Lt. Art Adams said.
Just after 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Officer Michael Hade stopped a white van on Route 46 for a motor vehicle violation, Adams said. While speaking with a passenger in the vehicle, Hade discovered the man provided false identification, Adams said.
Edwin Cabrera-Canales, 25, of Dover was then taken to police headquarters for further investigation, Adams said. At that point it was learned Cabrera-Canales had an active criminal sexual conduct with a minor warrant out of Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office in South Carolina.
Cabrera-Canales was lodged in Morris County Correctional Facility awaiting extradition to South Carolina. He was charged with providing false information to a law enforcement official and riding on parts not intended for passenger.
