Intoxicated Heavy Goods Driver Amongst 14 Arrested During Curfew Hours Last Night

Fourteen arrests were made last night for breach of the nationwide curfew hours.

One case in particular involved a 52-year-old heavy goods truck driver who was arrested in Korovou after 11pm as he was allegedly found driving under the influence of alcohol.

Upon checking the suspect’s documents issued by employers as proof to indicate that he was supposed to be moving around between the hours of 10pm to 5am, officers discovered the suspect to be drunk.

He was arrested and is currently in custody.

This was the lone case recorded in the Eastern Division, while the Southern Division recorded eleven (11) cases, whereas the North and Southern Division recorded one case each.

Officers will be coming down hard on those using authorised documents issued by their employees to move around other than for its intended purpose.
