Civil­ian com­plaint leads to im­paired driv­ing ar­rest

The Drumheller Mail - - REAL ESTATE -

Thanks to a civil­ian re­port from a con­cerned res­i­dent, po­lice were able to take an im­paired driver off the road in mid af­ter­noon.

At ap­prox­i­mately 2:45 p.m. on Wed­nes­day, April 6, Drumheller RCMP re­ceived a re­port of a pos­si­ble im­paired driver on High­way 56, north of Drumheller.

Po­lice im­me­di­ately re­sponded and with the as­sis­tance of a mo­torist, lo­cated the sus­pect mo­tor ve­hi­cle trav­el­ling south­bound on Range Road 20-4. Po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­sulted in the ar­rest of the driver of the mo­tor ve­hi­cle for im­paired driv­ing.

The driver was trans­ported to Drumheller De­tach­ment where it was de­ter­mined the driver had blood al­co­hol read­ings in ex­cess of three times the le­gal limit. The driver, an adult fe­male from Cam­rose, Al­berta, was lodged in cells un­til sober and re­leased on doc­u­ments for first ap­pear­ance in Drumheller Pro­vin­cial Court in May 2016.

The adult male pas­sen­ger of the sus­pect mo­tor ve­hi­cle was also ar­rested on out­stand­ing war­rants and trans­ported to Drumheller De­tach­ment.

The RCMP en­cour­age the gen­eral pub­lic to re­port sus­pected im­paired driv­ers to the near­est RCMP De­tach­ment.

Po­lice con­tinue their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into this mat­ter.
