On Satur­day, the Sureté du Que­bec car­ried out an op­er­a­tion to catch driv­ers us­ing their cell­phones. The three of­fi­cers who took part in the op­er­a­tion po­si­tioned them­selves on the ac­cess ramp of Port­land Blvd. from the au­toroute 410 and on In­dus­triel Blvd. Be­tween 8:00 am and 3:00 pm, the po­lice ques­tioned 40 driv­ers, hand­ing out 26 fines for us­ing a cell­phone while driv­ing, 15 fines for not wear­ing a seat­belt, 3 fines for not stop­ping prop­erly at a stop sign, and 7 notices to driv­ers to go and have their tinted wind­shields checked to see if they are too dark.

Two more peo­ple have been ar­rested in con­nec­tion to the Sureté du Que­bec po­lice op­er­a­tion that took place at the be­gin­ning of the month which net­ted around 1000 mar­i­juana plants and ended in three ar­rests: a 43 year-old man in a res­i­dence on Ba­con’s Bay Road; a 42 year-old man at a du­plex on St. Hi­laire Street, in Ma­gog; a 36 year-old man in a res­i­dence on Vil­las street, in Or­ford. In­te­rior pot-grow­ing op­er­a­tions were found at the res­i­dence in Or­ford and on An­dré street, in Ma­gog.

The two peo­ple ar­rested on Mon­day, Philippe Cooney and Julie Pe­trecca, were for­mally ac­cused of cannabis pro­duc­tion and pos­ses­sion with in­tent to traf­fic.
