Peterborough police credit a call from a concerned citizen for a drug-impaired driving arrest on Tuesday afternoon.
The Peterborough Police Service says just after 1 p.m., a citizen called reporting a suspected impaired driver who allegedly struck several curbs and a snowbank in the area of Hunter Street and Armour Road before continuing to Barnado Street.
Police located the suspect’s vehicle. A subsequent investigation, which included the use of a drug recognition expert, determined the driver was impaired by a drug (narcotic analgesic).
Joseph Raymond Dodds, 22, of Peterborough, was arrested and charged with operation while impaired-drug and breach of recognizance.
He was held in custody and was scheduled to appear in court in Peterborough on Wednesday, police said.
