Woman and 2 men facing weapons charges.
A Halifax woman and 2 men are facing charges after a weapon was recovered during an impaired driving investigation early this morning in Halifax.
At 2:20 a.m., patrol members spotted a vehicle driving suspiciously weaving in and out of its lane as well as showing several signs of the driver potentially driving while impaired.
After the vehicle was stopped and further investigation, the 20 year old woman driver was charged with impaired operation of a conveyance and refusal of the breathalyzer.
Subsequent to these interactions, a canister of prohibited sensory irritate spray was located. As a result the driver and 2 other men aged 19 and 20 were charged with weapons related offences. All are pending release with future Halifax court dates.
During the night, proactive patrols like these (unrelated to the above) in Halifax, Dartmouth and Bedford resulted in another impaired operation of a conveyance matter as well as a 7 day driving suspension, all alcohol related.
During the month of December, community members can expect to see additional dedicated enforcement for impaired driving.
