Charlottetown Police say the occupants were uncooperative and would not identify themselves.

The male was taken into custody to be dealt with according to Covid-19 public health protocols and remains in custody to answer to charges of obstructing police.

The female eventually identified herself, was issued a summary offence ticket under the Health Act and escorted back to New Brunswick.
