Police say when they looked into a report of a stolen vehicle Wednesday night, they arrested the owner for impaired driving as it is alleged she drove to the scene in a second car.

The 43-year-old female owner of the stolen vehicle was arrested for impaired driving and refusal of a breathalyzer demand when she apparently drove to the investigation scene around 10:45 p.m., the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said in its overnight report.

She will appear in court at a later date.
