GPS system leads to driver being arrested in Ontario

According to an official report from the RCMP, an Ontario motorist got into trouble when their GPS took them on an unplanned route, which then resulted in their immediate arrest.

The driver in question, who was driving from Ontario to Saskatchewan, eventually made his way to Sault Ste. Marie was on the city’s International Bridge leading into Michigan, according to law enforcement officials.

According to the RCMP, this detour was due to the driver relying heavily on his GPS to navigate Ontario. This resulted in a mapped route that relied heavily on southern roads near Lake Superior, ultimately landing the driver in hot water as he was led to a heavily guarded border crossing.

Upon approaching the border, U.S. Customs officials directed the driver back to the Canadian side of the bridge, where Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA) representatives conducted a secondary inspection of the driver’s vehicle. Upon inspection, CBSA officers discovered fentanyl in the driver’s trunk, leading to their arrest.

The charges include possession of a controlled substance and export of a controlled substance.

According to law enforcement officials, Steven Greena (the driver of the vehicle) has an active court date scheduled for later in July.
