Amherst man faces numerous charges after crash leads to recovery of stolen vehicles, Linden, N.S.

An Amherst man is facing numerous charges after a motor vehicle crash led officers to recover three stolen vehicles and lay impaired driving charges.

On August 24 at 6:30 a.m.

, Cumberland District RCMP responded to a single vehicle collision on Highway 366 in Tignish Bridge. When members attended the scene they found a Chevrolet Silverado that had been driven off the road and into a ditch. The driver, a 30-year-old Amherst man was located in the back of an ambulance and was arrested for impaired operation of a motor vehicle.

Shortly after, Cumberland District RCMP responded to a report of a break and enter to a residence and theft of a motor vehicle from Linden.
