A Brooklyn man is facing felony charges of aggravated unlicensed operation. Police say they discovered during a traffic stop in Guilderland that he had 26 active suspensions.

Troopers stopped 53 year old Edwin Mejias between exits 23 and 24 of the Thruway just before 10:30pm for violating the "Move Over Law". After stopping Mejias, the trooper says a DMV check found he had 26 active suspensions from 14 different dates.

According to officials, Mejias's 4-year-old granddaughter was a passenger in the vehicle and was not in a safety seat.
