File # 2021-30081

An RCMP investigation of an impaired driver led police to the execution of a Canada wide warrant of arrest.

Around 12:30 on the morning of July 15, 2021, a front line officer noted the erratic operation of a 4-door Toyota exiting Highway 9 to enter the parking lot of a service station in the 52000-block of Yale Road.

As police engaged with the alleged driver, the officer observed symptoms of impairment and through further investigation identified the individual as person wanted on a Canada wide warrant of arrest.

During the arrest of the individual RCMP seized a handgun, ammunition, liquor, and illegal drugs.

A 35-year-old man from Burnaby remains in custody on warrant related charges.

Following a thorough review of all evidence gathered, the RCMP will forward all circumstances of the investigation in a report to the BC Prosecution Service for their assessment of criminal charges.

A traffic check can quickly become a dangerous situation, said Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD. It is imperative officers remain alert and fall back to our training when circumstances demand.

Agassiz RCMP urge everyone who witnesses dangerous driving behaviour to contact police at 604-796-2211 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
