Drug Impaired Driving Leads To Arrests In Lunenburg County

RCMP are encouraging the public to report impaired drivers following a pair of arrests earlier this month.

On February 1 Lunenburg District RCMP members responded to a single-vehicle collision in East LaHave around 10 pm.

The investigation led police to believe that the 17-year-old male driver was impaired by drugs.

The driver failed to comply with the demand for a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) evaluation.

He will appear in Bridgewater Provincial Court February 28 to face impaired and refusal charges.

The following day, a 53-year-old woman was also arrested for impaired driving.

A DRE completed an evaluation and as a result, Elaine Delores Sarty of Bridgewater was charged with Impaired Driving.

Motorists are reminded that if they suspect a driver is operating a vehicle under the influence, they should call 9-1-1.
