Po­lice News

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Just af­ter noon on Au­gust 22nd, a man who was un­happy with the ser­vice he re­ceived at the Caisse Des­jardins du Lac-Mem­phrem­a­gog, in Ma­gog, loudly threat­ened to come back to the fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion with a firearm. Well-known to the po­lice, the 69 year-old man, from Ma­gog, was ar­rested when he re­turned to his place of res­i­dence at around 3:00 pm. He was kept in cus­tody and ap­peared in court the next day to face the charge of ut­ter­ing death threats.

Also ap­pear­ing at the Sher­brooke Court House was a young 19 year-old man who, hav­ing an ar­rest war­rant, gave a false name to po­lice of­fi­cers the day be­fore; a 33 year-old man who was seen out on the streets at 2:00 in the morn­ing, al­though un­der a cur­few to be home af­ter 11:00 pm; and two sus­pects from the Mon­treal re­gion who were ar­rested af­ter a brawl in a Ma­gog bar at around 3:00 am. Af­ter be­com­ing ag­gres­sive with the vic­tim with a beer bot­tle, they fled the bar and were ar­rested by the po­lice not far from the premises. The vic­tim was treated at the hos­pi­tal for head wounds. The sus­pects, aged 28 and 34, were ac­cused of armed as­sault caus­ing bod­ily harm. One was also charged with break­ing bail con­di­tions.
