NINE MILE RIVER: East Hants RCMP responded to 107 calls for service between July 6 to July 13.

Here are a couple of the highlighted calls as provided by S/Sgt. Cory Bushell.

On July 9, officers were called to attend the scene of a vehicle in the ditch in Nine Mile River. 

Upon arrival, members encountered a 26-year-old female from the Lantz area who was identified as the vehicle driver. The subsequent investigation revealed the female was impaired.

She was arrested and transported to the Enfield detachment where samples were taken of her breath.

The samples showed the driver had a blood alcohol reading of nearly twice the legal limit. 

S/Sgt. Bushell said the woman was charged with impaired driver and released to appear before the courts at a later date.
