Shortly before 1 a.m. Monday Hamilton police conducting speed enforcement on westbound traffic at Queenston Road east of the Red Hill Valley Parkway, saw a speeding black Toyota Camry.
Hamilton police say the driver was clocked at 145 km/h. He is facing a charge of stunt driving and was issued a summons to appear in court in April.
The vehicle, which was co-registered to the driver and another person, was impounded for seven days.
This was the second traffic stop that led to charges. About an hour earlier a 23-year-old man from Caistor Centre in a grey Chevrolet Cruze was stopped for speeding southbound on Kenilworth Avenue South near Monterey Avenue, police said.
Police smelled cannabis and saw a bag of marijuana in the driver’s sweatshirt pocket, Hamilton police said. Officers searched the vehicle and found a second bag of cannabis (total around 16 grams), a jar of 21 grams of crack cocaine and 525 unmarked cigarettes.
The 23-year-old Caistor Centre man was charged with possession of cocaine, driving with cannabis readily available and possession of unmarked cigarettes.
