RCMP conducts traffic stop and arrests driver for drug-impaired driving in Carbonear

A 27-year-old man is under investigation for drug-impaired driving after a traffic stop on October 7 in Carbonear.

Shortly after 3:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, officers on patrol on Powell Drive in Carbonear stopped a car with an inoperable tail light. Police detected an odour of cannabis coming from inside the vehicle and suspected that the driver was impaired. The man failed roadside sobriety testing and was arrested for impaired driving.

From there, he was transported to Carbonear General Hospital, where samples of his blood were obtained.

At this time, officers are awaiting the results of the testing to determine if charges of drug-impaired driving are appropriate. The investigation is continuing.
