SQ Po­lice Beat

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

What ap­pea­red to have been a recent rou­tine ar­rest for as­sault tur­ned in­to a drug bust for SQ po­lice. The Jan. 19 in­ci­dent be­gan at 3:40 p.m. when po­lice were cal­led to break up an ar­gu­ment at an apart­ment in Vau­dreuil-Do­rion. While sear­ching a 25-year-old man who was ar­res­ted for as­sault, of­fi­cers found drugs in his pos­ses­sion that led them to re­quest a war­rant to search his home. That search al­lo­wed po­lice to seize close to 25 grams of what ap­pea­red to be co­caine, over 25 grams of a sub­stance they be­lie­ved was ha­shish, more than 45 grams of what ap­pea­red to be ma­ri­jua­na, and more than 1,070 pills re­sem­bling ecs­ta­sy. In ad­di­tion, a pro­hi­bi­ted wea­pon and a box of am­mu­ni­tion were sei­zed. The sus­pect was de­tai­ned. He faces charges of pos­ses­sion of a pro­hi­bi­ted wea­pon, pos­ses­sion of nar­co­tics for the pur­pose of traf­fi­cking, and as­sault.

Using false ID no help

Even the use of so­meone else’s iden­ti­fi­ca­tion did not stop po­lice from lear­ning the true iden­ti­ty of a sus­pect in Vau­dreuilDo­rion. SQ of­fi­cers pa­trol­ling along Chi­coine St. on Jan. 15, at 9:15 p.m. stop­ped a man af­ter re­co­gni­zing him as the same per­son lis­ted in a po­lice bul­le­tin. Though the sus­pect first tried to use his bro­ther’s ID, po­lice soon lear­ned his true iden­ti­ty and ar­res­ted him. The 31-year-old was tur­ned over to of­fi­cers with the Mon­treal Po­lice Ser­vice. He fa­ced charges in­clu­ding im­per­so­na­tion and breach of condi­tions for fai­ling to com­ply with an eve­ning cur­few.

Slow down in win­ter

Po­lice are re­min­ding mo­to­rists to ad­just dri­ving ha­bits du­ring win­ter, and to avoid dri­ving al­to­ge­ther when pos­sible du­ring ha­zar­dous win­ter condi­tions. High­way pa­trol of­fi­cers re­por­ted nu­me­rous ac­ci­dents due to dif­fi­cult win­ter dri­ving condi­tions du­ring the past week and a half. In one case, a dri­ver col­li­ded with a snow­plow dri­ver on Jan. 19 at 6:45 a.m., when the car, tra­vel­ling west on Grand Bou­le­vard in L’Île-Per­rot, hit a trac­tor tra­vel­ling in the east­bound lane. No ap­pa­rent in­ju­ries due to the ac­ci­dent were re­por­ted.

Meanw­hile, a 23-year-old wo­man was ar­res­ted for drunk dri­ving af­ter blo­wing more than twice the legal li­mit du­ring a brea­tha­ly­zer test. Her car was im­poun­ded for 30 days, and her drivers li­cense was sus­pen­ded for 90 days.

And a 21-year-old man was al­so ar­res­ted for drunk di­ving while on Don-Qui­chotte Blvd. in L’Île-Per­rot. Po­lice say his blood al­co­hol le­vel was over the legal li­mit.

Shoplifting

A 43-year-old wo­man was ar­res­ted Jan. 18 for shoplifting at a bu­si­ness on Car­di­nal-Lé­ger Blvd. in Pin­court. The wo­man was caught lea­ving the store without paying for va­rious items she had hid­den in her bag.
