On Monday, Sturbridge police say they received an anonymous tip that Comtois had allowed his 13-year-old to drive more than eight miles from his Brookfield home to a Sturbridge shopping center.

When police checked Comtois’ Facebook page, they found a picture of the teen driving near the La Quinta in Sturbridge. The post also included a caption which read, “Did just as good as his big sister!!!”
