Creston RCMP respond to multiple driving and intoxication incidents

Creston RCMP responded many calls for service to start out February, most of which involved driving violations or intoxication.

On January 30, officers received a call about a possible drunk driver. They then located the vehicle, found the driver to be intoxicated, issued him a 90-day driving prohibition, and impounded his vehicle for 30 days.

The next day, an officer found a vehicle without insurance and issued multiple tickets and a 4-month driving prohibition to the owner.

On February 6, there was yet another case of driving without insurance, with the addition of the driver only having a learner’s license. The vehicle was towed and the man received multiple tickets.
