Following a thorough investigation, Jordan Croteau, a 28-year-old resident of St. David’s, was charged with impaired operation.

Just two days later, on June 3, 2023, Halton Police officers received a citizen-initiated complaint in the vicinity of Rockingham Drive and Bayshore Drive in Oakville. As a result of a comprehensive investigation, Joshua Sevilla, a 30-year-old individual from North York, faced charges of operating while impaired.
