Police seize vehicles, licenses, cocaine, fentanyl following spate of impaired or dangerous driving calls
Trio facing charges following three traffic stops in as many days
An Innisfil man had his vehicle impounded for two weeks after cops say they clocked him at nearly twice the posted speed limit in Innisfil.
The South Simcoe Police Service had the radar gun out along Yonge Street near Line 4 of Innisfil on Thursday afternoon around 12:30 p.m. when they say a vehicle approached at a high rate of speed. Police say the vehicle hit a speed of 116 kilometres per hour in a 60 zone.
Officers stopped the vehicle and charged a 39-year-old man with stunt driving and speeding, which not only resulted in the impounding of his vehicle, his license was suspended for seven days.
Meanwhile, South Simcoe Police had reason to charge another motorist in Innisfil. Officers responded to reports of a man slumped over the steering wheel of a parked vehicle at 9th Line and Bowman Street at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. The man was arrested for impaired driving, while officers say they seized some suspected fentanyl from the vehicle. The 36-year-old man from Wasaga Beach was also hit with a drug possession charge.
And on Tuesday at about 3:15 p.m., South Simcoe Police officers were dispatched to the area of Lockhart Road and 25th Sideroad in Innisfil with reports of a woman drifting in and out of sleep while at the wheel of a parked vehicle. She was arrested for impaired driving and police say some cocaine was seized. A 31-year-old woman is awaiting her court date.
