THUNDER BAY – Getting behind the wheel and driving after consuming alcohol seems to be a far too frequent happening in Northwestern Ontario. The Ontario Provincial Police may have ended the holiday season road stops, but they are remaining vigilant to reduce impaired driving.
The efforts of the Thunder Bay Detachment of the OPP resulted in the arrest and charges for a sixty-year-old Neebing man on February 1st 2017. A traffic stop on Highway 61 at about 3:25PM EST resulted in Christopher Garbo, being arrested and charged with two driving offences.
On Wednesday, February 1, 2017 at approximately 3:25 pm, an officer from the Thunder Bay Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) conducted a traffic stop on Highway 61.
