A 22-year-old man was arrested shortly before midnight Thursday after the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the Cabot Street area.

Police say he allegedly breached court orders, including the condition that he not operate a motor vehicle.

Summary offence tickets were also issued for various breaches of the Highway Traffic Act, including not having a licence, registration or insurance. The man was detained until a court appearance and the vehicle was impounded. 

The RNC said a 34-year-old passenger in the vehicle was found to be in violation of conditions of his parole.  He was also taken to the city lockup.

Meanwhile, a 58-year-old man was arrested around 11:20 p.m. Thursday night outside RNC headquarters for breach of court orders. He was held in custody until a court appearance.

And, around 1:15 a.m., security officers at a private facility alerted police to a possible impaired driver on their premises.

RNC officers responded and charged a 23-year-old man with impaired driving and operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit. He was released to appear in court at a later date.
