Impaired by Drugs


On May 29, 2019, at approximately 4:30 pm a witness contacted the Sarnia Police Service regarding a male sitting in the driver’s seat of a motor vehicle, parked in the 1200 block of Exmouth Street, acting erratically. Upon arrival police located the male and observed suspected fentanyl in centre console of the vehicle in plain view. Other paraphernalia was also located. From the signs and symptoms presented by the driver, along with the evidence that was located, the suspect was arrested for care and control of a motor vehicle while impaired by drugs. The suspect was transported back to the station where he was presented before a drug recognition expert for testing. Daniel Joseph Gibbs, 33 years of age, faces one count of impaired by drugs and one count of possession of a controlled substance. We would like to remind the public that if you suspect that someone is behind the wheel of a motor vehicle and is possibly under the influence of alcohol or drugs to contact the police.
