Four go miss­ing on Mt. Or­ford

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Fourpeo­ple were re­ported as miss­ing over the weekend in Mont Or­ford Park. The first two were quickly found at the be­gin­ning of the evening, on Satur­day, how­ever, the other two, a mother and her ten year-old daugh­ter, were found three hours af­ter the be­gin­ning of the search on Sun­day af­ter- noon, at around 5:30 pm. They were safe and sound when found al­though the young girl was be­gin­ning to get hy­pother­mia. The mother was able to ex­change in­for­ma­tion with the searchers us­ing her cell­phone, lead­ing to them be­ing found on the shore of a lake.

The num­ber of ar­rests for drunk driv­ing seems to be on the rise in the re­gion. Last weekend, six peo­ple were ar­rested by the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM). On Oc­to­ber 4th, a 21 year-old man from France drove into a gar­den at a busi­ness on Prin­ci­pale West, in Ma­gog. On Oc­to­ber 5th, a 32 year-old Ma­gog man and a 36 yearold man from Longueuil were both stopped on Sher­brooke Street. On the 6th, a Ma­gog man of 64 years was stopped on a mo­tor­ized scooter; a 20 year-old, un­der the zero tol­er­ance rule, tested pos­i­tive for al­co­hol al­though he was un­der the 80 mg. limit used with older driv­ers; and a 53 year-old driver of a car went off the Mil­letta road.

When a young man who was at­tempt­ing to trans­form mar­i­juana into oil in an apart­ment on Sher­brooke Street tried to ex­tin­guish a propane leak with a chem­i­cal ex­tin­guisher, the fire alarm went off and ev­ery­one had to evac­u­ate the apart­ment. The young man put all of his in­crim­i­nat­ing equip­ment into a bag which he hung from the bot­tom of his bal­cony, but was ar­rested and ques­tioned by po­lice none­the­less and will face charges of drug pos­ses­sion.
