October 25; Ash Avenue, Townsite
At approximately 10:45 pm, police stopped a vehicle on Ash Avenue for speeding while conducting patrols in the area. While speaking to the 28-year-old female driving the vehicle, police observed signs of impairment. The female was advised she would be required to provide a breath sample. She refused and as a result was issued a 90-day driving prohibition and 30-day vehicle impound. Penalties for refusing to provide a sample are the same as providing a sample that registers a “fail” on the device.
