Stanstead man ar­rested for child pornog­ra­phy

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Stanstead

Po­lice of­fi­cers with the Sureté du Que­bec ar­rested a Stanstead man, last Thurs­day, af­ter find­ing child pornog­ra­phy files on his com­puter and on DVD’S at his home on Leroy Robin­son Street. Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, he could be charged with pos- ses­sion, the pro­duc­tion and the dis­tri­bu­tion of child pornog­ra­phy. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion of this in­di­vid­ual was started by Amer­i­can au­thor­i­ties in 2011 who then gave in­for­ma­tion to the po­lice here.

Late Fri­day night a 21 year-old Stanstead man was ar­rested in Ma­gog for drink­ing and driv­ing. He had more than 80 mg of al­co­hol in his blood and was driv­ing with­out a valid li­cense. Be­sides crim­i­nal ac­cu­sa­tions and the sus­pen­sion of his li­cense for ninety days, the car which he was driv­ing that did not be­long to him was seized for thirty days. The owner of the car could be fined $300 and will have to pay tow­ing and pound charges. That could have been avoided with a li­cense check of the per­son who bor­rowed the car with the SAAQ that would have cost the car owner $1.55.

An ar­gu­ment be­tween two men, Sun­day morn­ing in Ma­gog, ended with the ar­rest of a 60 year-old man from Stanstead who was ut­ter­ing death threats and who tried to drive into the other man with his car.
