Il­le­gal cig­a­rettes found in Stanstead

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

In­ves­ti­ga­tors with the Sureté du Québec of the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC found 164 car­tons of il­le­gal cig­a­rettes dur­ing the night be­tween last Fri­day and Satur­day in a res­i­dence on Duf­ferin Street, in Stanstead.

It was a sim­ple com­plaint about noise that led the po­lice to the ad­dress where it seemed like the oc­cu­pant of the home was in the mid­dle of mov­ing. On site, the of­fi­cers found two men heav­ily in­tox­i­cated who were talk­ing at a ta­ble made with cases of il­le­gal cig­a­rette car­tons.

The prin­ci­pal oc­cu­pant of the home, a man of 41 years, will face some very stiff fines of sev­eral thou­sand dol­lars.
