The fire was quickly put out. On Satur­day, May 17th, in Ma­gog, at around 11:00 pm, the RPM ar­rested a 32 year-old for drunk driv­ing and a 27 year old for driv­ing while un­der re­stric­tion. That per­son re­fused to pro­vide a breath sam­ple and was taken to the po­lice sta­tion where, while in­car­cer­ated, he tore the mat­tress in his cell.

On Sun­day, May 18th, in Or­ford around 7:40 pm, of­fi­cers ar­rested some­one for driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of drugs or an­other sub­stance. The per­son was un­able to pass tests of phys­i­cal move­ment co­or­di­na­tion. Also on Sun­day, a mo­tor­cy­clist was stopped for do­ing 133 km/hr in a 70 kilo­me­tre zone. A fine of $1,040 and 14 in­ap­ti­tude points were given and the per­son’s driver’s per­mit was sus­pended for seven days. Also dur­ing the weekend, of­fi­cers with the RPM ar­rested two people for pos­ses­sion of cannabis and re­sponded to six calls re­gard­ing ac­ci­dents with­out in­juries. There was also a re­port made about a car that was van­dal­ized while parked at the Provigo and one made about van­dal­ism done to the bath­room at the snack bar on Merry Point.

Heavy ma­chin­ery was stolen from the work­site at the for­mer Wal­mart, in Rock For­est, on May 16th be­tween 4:30 pm and 10:15 pm. A truck with a trailer was cap­tured on the sur­veil­lance cam­era of a neigh­bour­ing busi­ness. A TRAMAC hy­draulic ham­mer (value $50,000), a REEPER (value of $7,000), and a WE­BER vi­brat­ing plate (value $15,000) were stolen. The REEPER was found the same night in the mid­dle of Henri-Labonne Street in St-Elie d’Or­ford.

On Mon­day, at around 2:15 pm, the Sureté du Que­bec of the Val St-Fran­cois MRC caught a young driver, a 23 yearold from Ma­gog, do­ing al­most 120 km/hr in a 70 kilo­me­tre zone on the viaduct of the au­toroute 55 in Wind­sor. He re­ceived a fine of $682 and 10 in­ap­ti­tude points.

Hay­den­spent the night at Stud­dert’s Ho­tel in Stanstead Plain. Early next morn­ing, he came to the Derby Line Ho­tel where Mr. Charles Brigham and his wife and Mrs. Hay­den were board­ing. He ap­peared to be un­der the in­flu­ence of liquor. He stopped there but a short time and then re­turned to Stanstead Plain.

At about 10 o’clock that morn­ing, he rode down to Rock Is­land with Ge­orge McDougall, who went on to Han­son’s Ho­tel from where he sent word to Mr. Brigham that Hay­den was threat­en­ing the life of his wife. Be­fore go­ing on to Derby Line, Hay­den was threat­en­ing the life of his wife. Be­fore go­ing on to Derby Line, Hay­den stopped at the drug and jew­elry store of Parsons & Car­pen­ter and bor­rowed a fivecham­bered re­volver be­long­ing to Mr. Parsons. He pre­tended that he wanted it to shoot a dog, ex­hibit­ing his leg to show that he had been bit­ten.

He then went on to the ho­tel where Mr. Brigham in­formed him that he could not see his wife in his present con­di­tion, but that if he re­turned sober, he could in­ter­view her
