A29 year-old man lost con­trol of his ve­hi­cle on Georgeville Road last Fri­day night, go­ing off the road and rolling over a few times. Luck­ily the driver had only mi­nor in­juries. Also on Fri­day night, a fif­teen year-old boy broke the win­dow of a Ma­gog garage to take all the keys of used ve­hi­cles for sale on the lot. He parked one car on an­other street and then left with a sec­ond car. He fin­ished his joyride in a ditch in the Omerville sec­tor at around 11:30 pm. Po­lice called to the site were able to fig­ure out where the car came from and went straight to that garage, only to find the cul­prit in the mid­dle of tak­ing a third ve­hi­cle. He was taken away and will ap­pear in youth court.

The po­lice would like help from the pub­lic to help solve two thefts of maple sap buck­ets in Ste-Cather­ine de Hat­ley. In to­tal, more than 1500 buck­ets were stolen on March 14th and the 15th. The value of the buck­ets is es­ti­mated at $7000. In­for­ma­tion can be given in a con­fi­den­tial man­ner by call­ing Echec au crime at 1-800-711-1800.

Last Sun­day, around mid­night, two young drivers were caught rac­ing their ve­hi­cles on au­toroute 10, in Sher­brooke. Po­lice saw the cars rac­ing from the 410 to km 137 of au­toroute 10 where the po­lice were ready to in­ter­cept them. The young drivers of 23 and 25 each re­ceived a fine of $1,264 and six in­ap­ti­tude points. The li­censes of the two drivers from Sher­brooke were also im­me­di­ately taken away for seven days.
