– Spring weather means more speed­ers

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Mem­phr/ma­gog

Last Fri­day, an of­fi­cer on the au­toroute in­ter­cepted two driv­ers who were speed­ing. A lit­tle be­fore 2:00 pm, a nine­teen year-old driver on the au­toroute 55 in Ste-Cather­inede-Hat­ley was do­ing 160 km/hr. He re­ceived a fine of $1,040 and he will lose his li­cense. A sec­ond driver was stopped on au­toroute 10 in Sh­ef­ford at around 4:30 pm. The man in his fifties was do­ing more than 160 km/hr. It was not the first time he had been caught speed­ing and his li­cense was al­ready sus­pended, so he re­ceived a fine of $1,800 and 14 in­ap­ti­tude points.

On Sun­day, an em­ployee at the Ga­leries Or­ford re­al­ized that there had been a theft dur­ing the night. How the thief or thieves en­tered is still not known, how­ever, the grill of a busi­ness was forced and a wall bro­ken to get into an­other store where money, can­dies, stuffed an­i­mals and sev­eral cell phones were stolen. Also on Sun­day, of­fi­cers with the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) re­sponded to a call about an er­ratic driver on Ruis­seau Rouge Street and pro­ceeded to ar­rest the same in­di­vid­ual that they ar­rested on May 4th for do­ing 147 kilo­me­tres an hour in a 90 km/hr zone. At that time, the in­di­vid­ual tried to lose the po­lice, pass­ing ve­hi­cles with its lights off, over a dis­tance of 3.5 kilo­me­tres. The RPM would also like to re­mind ve­hi­cle own­ers to lock their cars at all times, es­pe­cially at night. Over the weekend, there was one theft re­ported but wit­nesses saw and chased off sus­pects who were check­ing for unlocked cars in people’s drive­ways in three dif­fer­ent sec­tors of town.
