On the ter­ri­tory of the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM), on Satur­day morn­ing, the po­lice con­ducted a search on Pierre-Richard Street, in Ma­gog. They found two cannabis grow­ing op­er­a­tions, one in the house and the other in the garage. In all, 1,615 plants were seized. A 49 year-old sus­pect was ar­rested. The in­for­ma­tion that led to this ar­rest came from an SQ of­fi­cer who, when de­liv­er­ing a doc­u­ment to the sus­pect, smelt the odor of mar­i­juana com­ing from the house.

Fi­nally, the RPM is also ad­vis­ing peo­ple that for the last few days, a man has been of­fer­ing free main­te­nance ser­vices on ther­mop­umps and heat­ing sys­tems un­der the guise of be­ing part of a class ac­tion suit. He then makes fake re­pairs and charges large amounts for his ser­vices in the name of a Mon­treal com­pany. Any­one who be­lieves they have had con­tact with this man should call the RPM at 819 8433334.
