A Brampton teen’s licence has been suspended and a Caledon man has been charged with heroin possession after a pair of suspicious vehicle calls on the weekend.

Just after 3:00 a.m. on Saturday morning (April 9), members of the Caledon OPP were called to Morra Street in Bolton for reports of a suspicious vehicle in the neighbourhood.

Police say they located the vehicle and spoke to the driver, and officers suspected that the driver’s abilities were impaired.

The 18-year-old driver was arrested and taken to a nearby police station where police conducted breath tests.

Ragavi Ragulan, 18, of Brampton has been charged with operation while impaired.

The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on June 23.

Later that same day just after 4:30 p.m., the Caledon OPP received another report of a suspicious vehicle in the area of Old Church Road and Highway 50.

When officers arrived on scene they arrested the driver for impaired operation by drugs after an investigation.

Police say testing was conducted by a Drug Recognition Expert and Kyle Revell, 31, of Caledon was changed with:

  • Operation while impaired
  • Possession of a Schedule I substance – heroin

The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on June 20.

Both of the vehicles in these incidents were impounded for seven days and the driver’s licences were suspended for 90 days.

Police are reminding the public not to drink alcohol or consume drugs if you plan to not drive and arrange for a designated driver, taxi or public transit when impaired.

If you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, police say to report it by calling 9-1-1.
