One suspect leads Kimberley RCMP to another

No insurance leads to an impaired driver and then back

For the Bulletin

A vehicle with no insurance lead an officer to an impaired driver who in turn led the officer back to the uninsured vehicle.

A member was patrolling a public parking lot when he noted a vehicle without insurance.  A short time later he observed the same vehicle heading east on Highway 95A from Kimberley, He attempted to catch up to the vehicle but while doing so he observed another vehicle that was weaving on the road.

The officer stopped the vehicle, the driver showed signs of impairment and he read the breath demand.  The driver provided two breath samples, both a “FAIL”.   The driver was served a 90 day driving prohibition and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

The driver now without a vehicle, called a friend to pick him up. The original vehicle with no insurance showed up.  The officer then dealt with the no insurance violation.

 

 

Calling a friend might not always be the best option, maybe next time he’ll ask the audience.
