Po­lice News

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

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.
