In Police Blotter

Police have arrested a driver for impaired driving after responding to a call in the north end of Cobourg.

On Thursday, December 15, 2022, at 11:20 a.m., police were called to the area of Elgin Street West and William Street for a report of an impaired driver.

The caller reported a car was driving all over the road.

As a result of police investigation, a 34-year-old Cobourg woman was arrested for impaired operation by drug and charged with the following offences:

1. Operation while impaired contrary to Section 320.14(1)(a) of the Criminal Code
