Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged two drivers with impaired operation over this past weekend.
On April 9, 2022, at approximately 3:10 a.m., a resident on Morra Street in Bolton contacted the OPP to report a suspicious vehicle in the neighbourhood. Officers attended and located the vehicle and spoke to the driver. Officers suspected that the driver’s abilities were impaired and they were asked for a sample of their breath into an Approved Roadside Screening Device. As a result of the investigation, the driver was arrested for impaired operation and taken to a nearby police station where further breath tests were conducted.
As a result, Ragavi RAGULAN, 18, of Brampton, was changed with:
• Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (80 plus)
The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on June 23, 2022, to answer to the charge.
Later that same day, at approximately 4:33 p.m., the OPP received another report of a suspicious vehicle in the area of Old Church Road and Highway 50. Officers attended and formed grounds to arrest the driver for impaired operation by drugs. Further testing was conducted by a Drug Recognition Expert.
As a result of the investigation, Kyle REVELL, 31, of Caledon was changed with:
• Operation while impaired – drugs
• Possession of a Schedule I substance – heroin
The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on June 20, 2022, to answer to the charges.
In addition to having to attend court, the two involved vehicles were impounded for seven days and the driver’s licences were suspended for a period of 90 days.
The OPP relies on the public to report crime. Impaired driving is a crime that should be treated no differently. Caledon OPP would like to thank the two members of the public for reporting these incidences.
If you plan on drinking or consuming drugs, plan to not drive. Instead, arrange for a designated driver, take a taxi or public transit, or come up with another plan that takes impaired driving out of the picture.
If you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, it is important to call 9-1-1 to report it.
