Theft charges lead to drunk driving arrest
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary charged and arrested a 45-year-old woman with impaired driving on Friday afternoon — after she was charged with theft at a Kelsey Drive business.
While following up on the theft charge, RNC officers observed the same woman operating a vehicle on the parking lot, and pulled her over.
The accused was given additional charges of impaired driving and failing the breathalyzer.
The woman was held overnight, and was scheduled for a court appearance on Saturday.
