Caught cold-handed: Beer on way to the beach a bad idea, as passenger gets ticket after Facebook post
Gambo man also warned for having unsealed cannabis readily available within vehicle
Police say a Gambo man is facing charges after he posted a photo on Facebook of himself drinking a beer while in a vehicle, with a child in the back seat.
Glovertown RCMP received a report around 2 p.m. on Tuesday that the man had posted the image on Facebook. The picture shows the man drinking a beer while in the front passenger seat of a car, captioned "sucking 'er back Honda way to the beach."
Police say they located the man a short while later, travelling as a passenger in a van leaving Eastport Beach.
The RCMP said it stopped the van to speak to the man, and then found a small amount of open cannabis in the van.
The man was ticketed under the Liquor Control Act of Newfoundland and Labrador for having open liquor in a vehicle. He was also warned for having unsealed cannabis readily available within the vehicle and the cannabis was seized under the Cannabis Control Act.
