At 2:00 am this morning, Charlottetown Police Services responded to a 911 call reporting a theft of vehicle on Wendy Drive.
Upon Police arrival, Police were met by several people arguing and observed a broken window on the residence. The female complainant had two outstanding arrest warrants and was arrested. It was also determined that the complainant was also responsible for having broken the residence window. During the arrest process, the female became aggressive and assaulted two Police Officers. As a result, a 36 year old Stratford woman has been charged with two counts of mischief under $5000 dollars, two counts of assault Police and two counts of uttering threats. The accused is currently in custody and will appear for a remand hearing later today.
The vehicle that was alleged to have been stolen returned to the Wendy Drive residence as Police were arresting the complainant. The female driver of the vehicle displayed signs of being impaired by drugs and was arrested. An officer trained as a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) confirmed the driver was under the influence of drugs and made the demand that a blood sample be provided. Impaired driving charges are pending the blood sample toxicology results. A 41 year old Charlottetown female was released from custody with a 90 day driving prohibition order and the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.
The investigation into the theft of vehicle is ongoing and may result in further charges.
