PLYMOUTH –  Two people were arrested  for impaired driving, thanks to a phone call to police from the public.

Just before midnight on Friday evening, Pictou County District RCMP responded to complaint of two impaired drivers in a parking lot in Plymouth.

Upon arrival, RCMP located open liquor in one of the vehicles. Further investigation determined that both drivers were under the influence of alcohol. As a result, a 47-year-old man from Kenzieville was arrested for refusal to provide a breath sample on an approved screening device. He is scheduled to appear in Pictou County Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. on November 26. He also received a Summary Offence Ticket for operating an unregistered vehicle.

The driver of the second vehicle, a 31-year-old woman from Abercrombie, was arrested and is facing charges for impaired care and control of a motor vehicle and refusal to provide a breath sample. She is scheduled to appear in Pictou County Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. on November 26.

The investigations are continuing.
