(CENTRAL HURON, ON) – A resident of South Huron is facing two charges following an incident that took place at the Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Detachment earlier this week.
On Sunday, October 3, 2021 at approximately 9:10 p.m. the accused attended the Huron OPP Detachment in Clinton seeking assistance on an unrelated matter. While interacting with the accused the investigating officer noted the accused was displaying signs of impairment by way of a drug.
The accused was then directed to not drive away from the detachment in her vehicle. The accused failed to abide by the direction and instead entered into the motor vehicle with the intent to drive away from the detachment.
At that point the officer made a demand to the driver for a Standard Field Sobriety Test (SFST). The driver ultimately refused to complete the testing and was placed under arrest. A search incident to arrest was completed and a small quantity of suspected methamphetamine was seized.
Sarah GORE, 43 years of age, from South Huron has been charged with Refuse to Comply with Demand and Possession of a Schedule I Substance – Methamphetamine. She has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for November 15, 2021 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
