The Coat­i­cook Sureté du Que­bec is in­ves­ti­gat­ing a se­ries of in­ci­dents of van­dal­ism which were com­mit­ted over the week­end in Lau­rence Park. The sus­pects broke equip­ment and put up graf­fiti in sev­eral places. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is be­ing asked to call the Coat­i­cook SQ post at 819 849-4813. The po­lice would also like peo­ple to be vig­i­lant and to report any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour go­ing on in the park.

On Satur­day night, around 10:00 pm, a cit­i­zen called the po­lice to report the ‘shady’ be­hav­iour of two in­di­vid­u­als who were pok­ing around a car and who then left in an­other car. Thanks to the de­scrip­tion given to the po­lice, the sus­pi­cious in­di­vid­u­als and their ve­hi­cle were lo­cated in down­town Coat­i­cook. The po­lice then ar­rested the driver for break­ing bail con­di­tions; he had a curfew. The po­lice found sev­eral ob­jects in the ve­hi­cle that had just been stolen from three cars and pro­ceeded to ar­rest the two sus­pects for steal­ing. The con­duc­tor, De­nis Lussier of Granby, was for­mally charged with break­ing bail con­di­tions and the theft of $5000. The pas­sen­ger was re­leased and will ap­pear later in court.

The Sureté du Que­bec of the Coat­i­cook MRC would like to high­light the vig­i­lance and involvement of ci­ti­zens. In the last few months, sev­eral in­ter­ven­tions by the pub­lic have led to the ar­rest of sus­pects; it is an ef­fec­tive col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the po­lice and the res­i­dents of the MRC.

Drivers are be­ing re­minded, once again, to lock the doors of their ve­hi­cles. The thefts com­mit­ted over the week­end oc­curred in ve­hi­cles that were not locked. Af­ter pro­ceed­ing with sev­eral op­er­a­tions to make peo­ple aware about the im­por­tance of lock­ing their car doors, the po­lice have be­gun to give out fines in park­ing lots in Coat­i­cook.
