Williams Lake RCMP handed out two 90-day driving prohibitions to suspected impaired drivers Friday night as part of their weekend shift.
According to Staff Sgt. Del Byron, on Friday, May 6, police received a report at 7:24 p.m. of a possible impaired driver on Chimney Lake Road who had been consuming alcohol during the day at the lake.
Officers stopped the 18-year-old female driver, observed signs of intoxication and performed two sobriety tests, which the driver failed, said police.
She was given a 90-day driving prohibition and her vehicle was towed and impounded for 30 days.
Later that evening, at about 11:49 p.m., a 22-year-old male driver was also given a 90-day driving prohibition and 30-day vehicle impoundment after police discovered the man outside of his vehicle after it was parked in the Kal Tire parking lot. Byron said officers had spotted the driver leaving a liquor establishment earlier that evening.
On Saturday, May 7 at 9:58 p.m. police received a report of a man stealing $20 out of a donation box at the Handi Mart.
The suspect is described as having red hair, a black T-shirt, black hoodie and backpack. RCMP are in the process of reviewing video surveillance taken at the time of the theft.
On Sunday, May 8 at 1:35 a.m. Byron said officers stopped the driver of a Red Kia Sorrento on Dog Creek Road and discovered .3 grams of methamphetamine, a meth pipe and some marijuana.
Police are forwarding charges to Crown against the 35-year-old male driver.
