Midgic man ar­rested for care­less use of firearm, unau­tho­rized pos­ses­sion in a mo­tor ve­hi­cle

Sackville Tribune - - COVER STORY -

A 31-year-old Midgic man was ar­rested Wed­nes­day, Sept. 27, for care­less use of a firearm and unau­tho­rized pos­ses­sion in a mo­tor ve­hi­cle dur­ing a spe­cial traf­fic op­er­a­tion by the Sackville RCMP.

RCMP, with the as­sis­tance of other law en­force­ment agen­cies and the De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion and In­fra­struc­ture, checked east­bound traf­fic on the Tran­scanada High­way last Wed­nes­day for a four-hour pe­riod be­tween 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. just out­side of Sackville.

Sev­eral Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle Act vi­o­la­tions were de­tected dur­ing the op­er­a­tion. Some of the in­frac­tions in­cluded: no cur­rent in­spec­tion cer­tifi­cate, ex­pired ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tion, no valid in­sur­ance and no valid driver’s li­cence. Some ve­hi­cles were towed as a re­sult of not be­ing me­chan­i­cally safe for the road. The op­er­a­tion was con­ducted as part of on­go­ing ef­forts by the RCMP to make sure driv­ers are aware of the rules of the road and to pre­vent se­ri­ous in­juries and fa­tal­i­ties on New Brunswick roads.

The Midgic man who was ar­rested Wed­nes­day was re­leased and is sched­uled to ap­pear in court at a later date.
