Keeping, 30, was stopped by the RNC while driving a 1999 Chevrolet pickup truck on O’Connell Drive in Corner Brook at around 4 p.m. Monday. Sheppard, 49, was stopped while driving a 1999 Oldsmobile on the Trans-Canada Highway at around 9:15 p.m.
Both men were charged with driving while suspended from doing so, operating a vehicle without an insurance policy in effect, and failing to transfer ownership of a vehicle.
Sheppard was also charged with operating an unregistered vehicle.
Both men had their vehicles seized by the RNC and were held in custody until they could make appearances in provincial court Tuesday morning. They were both released on conditions that included they refrain from driving.
Keeping and Sheppard both had their next provincial court appearances scheduled for May 7.
