Ponoka RCMP charged an Eckville man with impaired driving.

Police say on Jan. 18 Mounties were called to a complaint of an impaired driver on Highway 2A south of Ponoka.

The 25-year-old driver had his car towed and was also charged with driving while prohibited, driving an uninsured and unregistered vehicle, and not having a properly displayed licence plate.

Erratic driver

On Jan. 20 the Ponoka RCMP were conducting routine patrols when it was noticed that a vehicle on 50th Street was being driven in an erratic manner.

Police say the 23-year-old woman driver had originally signalled left, but turned right instead. Police pulled over the vehicle and investigators say the driver, from Maskwacis, was grossly intoxicated.

The woman was charged with impaired driving.

Mischief to vehicles

On Jan. 16 the Ponoka RCMP responded to a complaint of theft and mischief to numerous vehicles parked in the Wolf Creek Estates area.
