Five immediate roadside suspensions resulted from a Sept. 2 late evening checkstop in the Glenbow neighbourhood.

Cst. Bonnie Sauve, RCMP information officer, says about 100 vehicles were checked in the joint operation of the Cochrane RCMP Municipal Traffic Unit and Alberta RCMP Traffic Unit.

"Standard field sobriety testing was completed and a drug recognition expert attended to assist with a suspension by drugs," says Cst. Sauve.

Suspensions included driver’s licence suspensions, vehicles towed, and a fine in the range of $300 and $1,000.

Constable Sauve says drivers face additional conditions for reinstatement of their licence and may be subject to further administrative and criminal sanctions and penalties.
