On March 19, at approximately 9:30pm, a Corman Park Police Service member was travelling north on Highway 12 just south of Highway 305 when he received an ALPR hit for a vehicle of interest.
A traffic stop was executed on the vehicle and the driver was found to be suspended and unauthorized. The driver was also found to be wanted on an outstanding warrant stemming from a previous impaired driving charge.
When questioned as to his alcohol consumption the driver denied consuming any alcohol. An ASD test was performed and the driver provided a sample of 18mg%. The driver was released on an undertaking with a future court date and issued two tickets, one for driving while suspended and one for making a false statement to a peace officer.
The vehicle was impounded for 30 days as the driver was an unauthorized driver as per SGI.
CPPS would like to remind the public that drivers are obligated to be truthful about their alcohol consumption under the Traffic Safety Act.
