Illegal cigarettes found in Stanstead
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.
