OnMay 22nd, at about 2:15 am, fire­fight­ers were called to a home in Bury on McIver street af­ter Molo­tov cock­tails had been thrown onto the front of the house which caught fire. Two adults and two chil­dren were in the house at the time. The SQ is presently con­duct­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion to see ex­actly what caused the fire. No-one was hurt dur­ing the in­ci­dent.

On May 26th, of­fi­cers with the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) ar­rested two six­teen year-old boys af­ter re­ceiv­ing a com­plaint about a break-in in a chalet on Ca­bana Street, in Ma­gog. The break-in took place last Satur­day when the boys en­tered the chalet through a win­dow on the side. It was the fourth com­plaint at this lo­ca­tion since April, and each break-in was ac­com­pa­nied by van­dal­ism, ex­cept the last. Later that night, of­fi­cers with the RPM stopped a ve­hi­cle on Des Pins, in Ma­gog. An all-ter­rain ve­hi­cle that was in the ve­hi­cle’s trunk drew the at­ten­tion of the po­lice who dis­cov­ered that it had just been stolen from a property nearby.

Many mar­i­juana grow­ing green­houses have been found by the po­lice re­cently. In the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of Lawrenceville, Bon­sec­ours, Ste-Anne de la Rochelle and South Stukely, four green­houses were dis­man­tled, all pow­ered with stolen elec­tric­ity. Al­most 1,300 cannabis plants, sev­eral bags of mar­i­juana and some hashish was found. Eight sus­pects were ar­rested and five of those were de­tained.

A mid­dle-aged man fell to his death from the Pi­na­cle, in Bald­win’s Mills, on the weekend.
