(HURON EAST, ON) - A Scarborough resident will have to make a trip back to Huron County to face a number of charges following a traffic stop that took place last weekend in Huron East.
On Saturday, February 15, 2020 at approximately 11:24 p.m. a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer was patrolling on Kippen Road when a speeding vehicle was observed approaching the officer. The officer activated a RADAR device and measured the speed of the vehicle in excess of 30 km/h over the posted 90 km/h zone.
A traffic stop was conducted and it was soon learned the driver held a suspended driver's licence. As such the driver was placed under arrest for driving while under suspension. A search of the vehicle was conducted and a quantity of cannabis was found readily accessible to the driver.
Further observations led the officer to conducting a Standard Field Sobriety Test (SFST) on the driver. The driver complied and performed poorly. The driver was now placed under arrest for Impaired Operation.
The driver was subsequently transported to the Sebringville OPP Detachment for further testing conducted by a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE). The tests were completed and it was deemed by the DRE the driver had failed.
As a result, Angela TAYLOR, 54 years of age, from Scarborough has been charged with Impaired Operation, Driving While Under Suspension, Speeding, Fail to Surrender Insurance Card and Drive Vehicle With Cannabis Readily Available.
The accused has been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for March 9, 2020 at the Ontario Court of Justice Goderich.
