A 59-year-old man from Holyrood was charged with impaired driving Friday after RCMP acted on an anonymous tip from the public.

Police say the suspect was observed operating his truck on Route 60 in the town and subsequently stopped and arrested.

The RCMP said breath samples indicated a blood alcohol reading, 2 1/2 times the legal limit.

The driver is to appear in provincial court on Oct. 11.
