Routine patrols lead to bad day for Rossland man
Routine traffic patrols n Rossland are bearing fruit, according to Trail RCMP top cop Sgt Mike Wicentowich.
“On Friday, Oct. 29, 2021 at 10:07 p.m. a frontline Trail and Greater District RCMP officer was conducting a routine patrol when he observed 47-year-old Rossland man driving in his blue 2007 Volvo S40 allegedly fail to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Spokane Street and Columbia Avenue in Rossland,” Wicentowich said.
“The officer detained the man and his vehicle roadside. The officer detected an odour of liquor emanating from the man and entered into an impaired driving investigation. A demand was read to the man, who provided a sample of breath roadside that resulted in a fail.”
The 47-year-old Rossland man was issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP) under section 215 of the BC Motor Vehicle Act and had his vehicle impounded for up to 30 days.
