EPS members arrest another impaired driver

For the second time this week, the Estevan Police Service has apprehended an impaired driver.

A report of an impaired driver was called into the police on March 24. The suspect vehicle was located at a north Estevan hotel.  A 26-year-old Roche Percee man was arrested and charged for operating a conveyance with a blood alcohol over .08 and operating a conveyance while impaired by alcohol.

He will appear in court in June to answer to the charges. 

His vehicle was impounded for 60 days due to his blood alcohol level being four times the legal limit.

Police also received two reports of an attempted fraud. Fortunately the victims did not provide any information to the caller. These matters are being looked into further.
