Officers seize 12-gauge shotgun while arresting impaired driver on Carling Avenue: Ottawa police

What started as a traffic stop for a suspected impaired driver earlier this week ultimately led officers to seize an illicit weapon and lay charges against two individuals, according to Ottawa police.

Front-line officers say they responded to calls about an erratic driver on Carling Avenue near Woodroffe Avenue on Tuesday evening, where they reportedly found a weaving car and arrested the driver on suspicion of operating a vehicle while impaired.

Officers say they then found ammunition in the driver’s pocket, prompting a further search of the vehicle, where police say they found a 12-gauge shotgun.
