On Sunday, May 30, 2021 at 8:07 pm, the Kitimat RCMP received an anonymous complaint that there was a vehicle that had sped past them on the highway, then parked at a rest stop reclining the seats back. Police attended the reported location and conducted a traffic stop with the vehicle that matched the reported description and had the drivers seat reclined back. An officer knocked on the window and woke the single male occupant who appeared to be dazed with slurred speech and glazed eyes.
