K9 police dog Gunner helps with arrest

An overnight Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) report says police charged two people with impaired driving in Conception Bay South.

The first incident doesn’t provide a time of arrest, but the report covers the period from 4 a.m. Saturday to 4 a.m. Sunday.

It says police responded to a report of a possible impaired driver in Topsail. Police located the vehicle, but the driver ran away. 

The report says a 47-year-old man was quickly apprehended by the K9 police dog Gunner.

The man was charged with impaired driving and refusal of the breathalyzer. He also had an outstanding arrest warrant for another impaired charge and court order breaches.

He was held for a court appearance Sunday morning, and his vehicle was impounded.

The second incident occurred around 12:40 a.m. Sunday, according to the RNC report.

Again, police responded to a report from the public of a possible impaired driver in Conception Bay South. 

Police charged a 42-year-old woman with impaired driving over .80mg. Her vehicle was seized and she was released to appear in court at a later date.
