Guns seized in Stanstead Town­ship

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC

About sixty mar­i­juana plants were found grow­ing out­side a prop­erty on Amy Street in Stanstead Town­ship. This led to a search of the house on the prop­erty where of­fi­cers with the Sureté du Québec found seven firearms. The res­i­dent who was sub­se­quently ar­rested, fifty-five year-old Ger­main Roy, was un­der court or­der not to have firearms in his pos­ses­sion. A wo­man was also ar­rested at the scene.

A 46 year-old man liv­ing on the Tomi­fo­bia Road, in Og­den, was ar­rested last Wed­nes­day in con­nec­tion with two cases of break­ing and en­ter­ing that oc­curred re­cently in the Stanstead area. Found in his home were sev­eral ob­jects that had been re­ported as stolen in­clud­ing sev­eral chain­saws and a Honda whip­per snip­per. Con­tra­band to­bacco was also found on the premises. Af­ter ap­pear­ing in front of the judge, the sus­pect was re­leased af­ter promis­ing to reap­pear in court.

A forty-three year old male showed up at a bar in Ayer’s Cliff last week­end, in the af­ter­noon, but didn’t get any ser­vice be­cause he was so ine­bri­ated. He left the premises in a car so the bar worker phoned the po­lice who soon stopped him en route to an­other drink­ing es­tab­lish­ment. “The sus­pect’s car was seized for thirty days and his li­cense was sus­pended for ninety days,” com­mented Sgt. Louis Philippe Ruel.

Lt. Yanic Ferland, the di­rec­tor of the SQ post of the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC, wants to warn driv­ers about the num­ber of deer in the re­gion. With the com­ing of the hunt­ing sea­son and the cold weather there is al­ways a sharp in­crease in the num­ber of deer and ve­hi­cle col­li­sions. Driv­ers are be­ing asked to slow down when they see deer signs, they are there for a rea­son, and when there is a for­est or high veg­e­ta­tion along the road­way. In the Es­trie re­gion, deer are re­spon­si­ble for one out of ev­ery three road ac­ci­dents. On the Min­istry of Trans­port roads alone there are about 1000 col­li­sions an­nu­ally in the Es­trie re­gion.
