The Brockville Police RIDE program was out Monday evening and stopped 120 vehicles to check on driver’s sobriety. While no alcohol related offences were detected, the RIDE Program once again found 2 drivers in possession of marijuana.
At approximately 11:10 pm last evening the RIDE program was set up at the intersection of Stewart Blvd and Eleanor Street when officers stopped a north bound vehicle. An odour of marijuana was detected inside the vehicle and the 21 year old driver was cooperative with police and turned over the drugs he had in his possession. The driver was released with a warning and the drugs were seized for destruction.
A short time later at the same location police stopped a north bound vehicle with a 19 year old female driver, her 18 year old female and 20 year old male passengers inside. Once again, officers detected an odour of marijuana from inside the vehicle. Again the occupants of the vehicle were very cooperative with police and the 18 year old female turned over a small quantity of marijuana to police for destruction. All three occupants were cautioned and released from the scene.
Brockville Police are reminding motorists of the dangers of driving while being impaired by drugs. It is an offence under the Criminal Code to be impaired by drugs and operate a motor vehicle and you can be arrested and face criminal charges. The Brockville Police and other police services in Ontario have Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) officers to test and provide expert court testimony on drug impairment and offenders can face the same penalties at court as driver’s impaired by alcohol.
