A man and a woman were arrested on Tuesday evening near the Speed River at MacDonell St. and Wellington St. East by an officer on bike patrol, with a search after the arrest revealing the pair possessed about $500 worth of crystal meth.

Both parties were initially brought into custody for being in breach of current court orders.

The 33-year-old man and 21-year-old woman were both charged with the possession of a controlled substance. The male was also charged with possessing a credit card and the female with three counts of breaching probation — both will appear in court in July, a police press release said.

Impaired driving

Separately, a concerned citizen called Guelph Police on Tuesday about an erratic driver on Watson Rd. and when the service arrived on scene they found a silver Nissan Maxima “driving erratically”.

The 56-year-old Guelph man failed a roadside test and was arrested, charged with impaired driving and has a court date set for June 25.

Police also ran “a short speed enforcement project” on Kortright Rd. West and eight Highway Traffic Act charges were laid.

“There is no need to speed.” police said in a press release, warning that police will be running these types of “proactive enforcement projects periodically throughout the summer”.
