GPS Misguides Driver Leading to Arrest in Ontario

An Ontario motorist found themselves in legal trouble when their GPS led them on an unexpected route, resulting in their arrest, according to an official RCMP report.

The driver, traveling from Ontario to Saskatchewan, ended up in Sault Ste. Marie and was directed onto the city’s International Bridge leading into Michigan.

The RCMP reports that the driver’s heavy reliance on their GPS caused this detour, navigating through southern roads near Lake Superior and eventually to a heavily monitored border crossing.

When the driver approached the border, U.S. Customs officials turned them back to the Canadian side of the bridge. There, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers conducted a secondary inspection of the vehicle. During this inspection, CBSA officers discovered fentanyl in the trunk, leading to the driver’s arrest.

The driver, Steven Greena, faces charges of possession of a controlled substance and export of a controlled substance. Greena has a court date scheduled for later this July.
