Operation While Impaired / Possession of a Schedule I Substance
On the 21st of April 2023, Port Hope Police were dispatched to the parking lot of a John Street business regarding a suspicious vehicle with a male sleeping in the driver’s seat, keys still in the ignition.
On arrival, officers observed the male to be slumped over and asleep in the driver’s seat. Further investigation led to the male being arrested for Operation while Impaired by drug. The male was searched, and police located a syringe and drug paraphernalia in his pants pocket.
Port Hope Police requested the assistance of the Cobourg Police Service Drug Recognition Expert. He performed tests and determined that the male was in fact impaired by drugs.
