Golf course van­dal­ized

Stanstead Journal - - COMICS /PUZ­ZLES -

tried to stop the ve­hi­cle, the driver turned off his car lights and took off at high speed, some­times go­ing as fast as 190 kilo­me­tres an hour dur­ing the chase. He also took down a fence and drove over a car­pet of nails in­stalled by of­fi­cers who were called in for back-up. When his tires ran out of air, the cul­prit aban­doned his ve­hi­cle and con­tin­ued his es­cape on foot, fi­nally be­ing ap­pre­hended in the Coat­i­cook area. A pas­sen­ger in the ve­hi­cle was re­leased with­out be­ing charged. The driver was held and ap­peared at the Sher­brooke Court House Mon­day morn­ing, ac­cused of dan­ger­ous driv­ing, run­ning from the po­lice and the ob­struc­tion of jus­tice. He was later re­leased. Three po­lice ve­hi­cles took part in the chase.

Dur­ing the night be­tween the 26th and the 27th, van­dals did a lot of dam­age to the Venise golf course in Ma­gog. A golf cart that was put into a pond is a to­tal loss and many greens were ru­ined. The dam­ages will to­tal tens of thou­sands of dol­lars. The
