On Wednesday, Kings District RCMP were told of a possible impaired driver in the Little Harbour area.

The alert came in just before 4:30 p.m. said a statement from the RCMP.

"A short time later, a 49-year-old male from Fortune Bridge was located in Chepstow," said Police.

The man was taken to the Souris RCMP office where he blew two samples, each containing more than three times the legal limit of alcohol.

The male faces charges of drunk driving and is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Georgetown in August.

"Kings District RCMP wish to thank members of the public for their continued assistance in reducing the number of impaired drivers on Prince Edward Island roads," said the RCMP statement.
