On Tuesday morning, a little before 4:00 am, the police stopped a driver who had a suspended license on Principale East, in Magog. During their investigation, the police noticed that the driver had burglary tools with him and, after a verification with the Centre de renseignements policiers du Quebec, also learnt that he had an order from the Court not to have such tools in his possession. Besides the tools, an imitation revolver was found under the driver’s seat. A small quantity of hashish and methamphetamines was also found. The 27 year-old suspect from St-Francois-Xavierde-Brompton appeared later that morning at the Sherbrooke Courthouse to face the charges of possession of tools for burglary, simple possession of drugs and breaking probation. The suspect’s vehicle was seized for thirty days because his license was suspended.
