Around 2:30 a.m. on June 26, Lunenburg District RCMP received a complaint of a possible impaired driver on Highway 103.
After officers stopped the vehicle between Exits 11 and 12 the driver gave a false name and said he didn’t have any identification. Police were able to determine he was 51-year-old Paul Michael Lucas, of Halifax, who was wanted on a Canada wide warrant for a parole violation. Officers found pills in the vehicle and charged Lucas with operating a motor vehicle while impaired by drug, as well as obstruction of justice. Further charges are pending.
Lucas was held in RCMP custody and will be transferred into the custody of Correctional Services Canada. He is scheduled to appear at Bridgewater Provincial court on July 19 to answer to the impaired driving and obstruction charges.
