Asus­pec­tis be­ing sought af­ter a hit-and-run which hap­pened on au­toroute 410, di­rec­tion East, in Sher­brooke. A col­li­sion took place be­tween the sus­pect ve­hi­cle, which was go­ing down the high­way in the wrong di­rec­tion, and a mo­tor­cy­cle driven by a twenty year-old who re­ceived mi­nor in­juries. The sus­pect ve­hi­cle re­sem­bled an old-model, brown Dodge Car­a­van with dam­ages to the front pas­sen­ger side. The driver was a man of about 65 years of age. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call 310-4141 or 4141.

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.
