Greenwich cops stop woman seen passing a school bus find she didn't have a license.

Greenwich Police arrested a Norwalk woman whom they say passed a school bus that was picking up students in Old Greenwich, on a variety of charges including driving with a suspended license.

Police Officer Sean Hughes was patrolling Sound Beach Avenue in Old Greenwich shortly after 8 a.m. April 23 when he saw a driver pass a school bus with lights flashing and crossing arm extended while students boarded the bus. Albertina Romero, 36, who gave an address of 7 Melbourne Rd., Norwalk, is accused of "handing off a fraudelent ID that she claimed to be a driver's license," according to a police report.

Romero was arrested after a Department of Motor Vehicle check revealed "her driving privileges (were) suspended in CT."

Police charged Romero with third-degree forgery, operating under suspension and passing a stopped school bus. While in police custody, a records check revealed she was named in an arrest warrant obtained by Norwalk Police for second-degree failure to appear in court.

Romero was held in lieu of $25,000 bond and scheduled to appear May 2 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
