Alert officers nab impaired driver during drug arrest
It was two-for-one night in Harbour Grace Aug. 10, but this was no in-store special.
Police who were busy arresting a man for trafficking at about 9:30 p.m. also arrested a suspected impaired driver who was sitting in a parked vehicle at the location of the original incident.
Members of the Trinity Conception District RCMP arrested a male from Harbour Grace who was in possession of a quantity of Ecstasy. The male is facing charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking in a controlled substance and was released with a court date in October. A quantity of cash was also seized.
A second man was arrested for having care and control of a motor vehicle while being impaired. Police say the man displayed signs of impairment. He was later released with a court date in November.
