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.
