They were also living on Dufferin Street, just a few buildings down from the store. “Apparently the suspects went into the store more than once during the night, stealing alcohol and cigarettes. The two men and one woman, ranging in age between twenty and thirty, did not resist arrest,” added Officer Guindon. By the time we went to press, the suspects, who were arrested around 8:30 am, were still at the SQ headquarters, waiting to meet with investigators. Officers returned to the residence of the individuals yesterday afternoon to do a search of the premises.
Officers in the Coaticook MRC were particularly busy last weekend. On Saturday morning, at around 11:00 am, a man entered a bar on Child Street and tried to steal the cash in the register. A female employee in the bar resisted the thief and a scuffle began which ended with the female employee pulling the sweater off of the culprit who then ran out of the building, empty-handed! After a quick investigation, the SQ officers, who knew the suspect, made an arrest. Although, in this case, resisting the thief led to an arrest without anyone getting hurt, the police do not normally recommend this kind of resistance.
On Saturday evening, around 11:00 pm, Coaticook officers were called to respond to a disturbance. When the officers were heading to their vehicle, a motorcycle passed a car on a double line, right in front of the SQ headquarters, so the officers separated, one heading to the disturbance while the other went after the motorcyclist who was also driving badly. The motorcyclist was stopped and arrested for drinking and driving. The officer who went to investigate the disturbance found a woman, quite inebriated, sitting in her car. She was also arrested because, if you are drunk, you are not even allowed to be sitting behind the wheel of your vehicle when it is parked.
A young man from Montreal was clocked doing 146 kilometres an hour in an 80 km/hr speed zone, on Sunday afternoon around 5:00 pm, travelling down the Barnston-Baldwin Road in Coaticook. He received a fine of $1,086 and lost 15 demerit points. “When drivers are stopped for excessive speeding, we have the right to also suspend their license immediately for seven days,” commented the spokesperson.
