Ahit and run incident involving an off-duty officer with the Sherbrooke Police has been handed over to the Direction des normes professionelles de la Sureté du Quebec who will now take over the investigation. The incident occurred in front of 1368 King West on May 2nd.
The Sherbrooke police carried out searches at 164 Pin Solitaire Street and 1635 Larocque Street, Appt. 4, on April 29th, to dismantle a drug network. They found 651 grams of cocaine, 259 grams of crack, 2266 grams of cannabis, 216 speed pills, hashish, and mushrooms. About $8000, three vehicles and three firearms were seized during the operation. The two suspects, a 41 yearold woman and a 48 yearold man from Sherbrooke, appeared in court the next day.
Last Wednesday, at around 11:00 pm, officers with the Regie de police Memphremagog (RPM) were a little surprised when they responded to an accident. A car had been travelling so fast along Champlain Street that when it hit a car parked along the street it ended up right on top of it! The two occupants tried to escape but were found by the police soon after thanks to the help of witnesses. The driver, a 34 year-old man, will face charges of drinking and driving and breaking probation.
The RPM stopped a vehicle on Hatley Street in Magog on Thursday afternoon. While the conductor looked for his license, the officer noticed a plastic bag with pills on the floor between the driver’s feet. He was then arrested for possession of drugs and it was discovered that he had not paid for his license since 2012. The car, which was not in his name, was seized for thirty days. The 39 year-old Ayer’s Cliff resident was detained and appeared in court the next morning to face the charges of possession of 8 methamphetamine pills and breaking conditions.
Needless to say, alcohol was involved in the parking of this car.
