    Man stopped for having snow on top of car arrested on outstanding warrants in Millbury

    A man stopped for driving with too much snow and ice atop his car was arrested in Millbury Tuesday for operating with a suspended license and warrants for larceny and shoplifting, State Police said.

    Joshua Mellen, 31, of Uxbridge was pulled over on Route 146 north at about 5:50 p.m. after a trooper noticed his Honda Odyssey minivan had snow and ice on top, State Police said in a statement Wednesday.

    After he was pulled over, Mellen was unable to produce a valid driver’s license and provided two false names and a false date of birth. A check with the registry revealed that his license was suspended and that he was the subject of four warrants out of Worcester and Leominster district courts, State Police said.
