On July 27, 2018, the Eastern Alberta District Rural Crime Reduction Unit (EADRCRU) members were conducting patrols in St Paul in conjunction with the St Paul RCMP Detachment. EADRCRU members conducted a traffic stop with a vehicle and arrested the driver, as he was prohibited from driving. Further investigation revealed that the driver of the vehicle was impaired by alcohol.
A 43-year-old male of Goodfish Lake will be charged with the following offences:
- Driving while disqualified,
- Impaired operation of a motor vehicle, and
- Impaired operation of a motor vehicle over 80 mg%.
He was released on a promise to appear and is scheduled to appear in court in St Paul on September 6, 2018.
The EADRCRU continues to work in cooperation with the detachments in Eastern Alberta District to identify and target repeat offenders.
