Over the weekend, a wanted a woman was arrested after shoplifting from a business on Woodlawn Rd. and a two-car collision resulted in a woman getting arrested for driving impaired, Guelph Police said on Monday.

On Sunday afternoon a female suspect entered a business and was later observed leaving the store by loss prevention officers so police were contacted and a 34-year-old Georgetown woman was arrested for theft.

It turns out the suspect was also wanted by police for failing to appear for a prior court date and, after she taken into custody, she was released on a “Promise to Appear” with a new court date scheduled for July 5.

Around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday night, police responded to a two-vehicle collision in the area of Gordon St. and Dean St. and after one of the drivers appeared to be impaired, police demanded a roadside breath sample.

The driver failed the screening and a 58-year-old female from Guelph was arrested for impaired and careless driving, served a 90-day driver’s licence suspension and her vehicle was impounded for seven days.

She was released soon after on a “Promise to Appear” with a court date set for June 4. The other involved vehicle incurred minor injuries.
