Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

On Mon­day, po­lice in the Val St-Fran­cois MRC re­ceived a call from a cit­i­zen who saw a man, in broad day­light, try­ing to steal an all-ter­rain ve­hi­cle on a property on the River Road in St-Fran­cois-Xavier-de-Bromp­ton. Af­ter he was star­tled by the wit­ness, the sus­pect took off by foot to­wards Sher­brooke. Pa­trollers with the Sureté

du Que­bec quickly alerted the Sher­brooke po­lice who went to the area to con­tinue the pur­suit of the sus­pect on foot. They soon lo­calised the sus­pect when he tried to hide along au­toroute 55 near the Sher­brooke city lim­its. The SQ were then told of his lo­ca­tion by the Sher­brooke po­lice and ar­rested him.
