Last Sun­day, mem­bers of the Brome-Mis­sisquoi Surete du Que­bec car­ried out an oper­a­tion to test the noise lev­els of the ex­haust sys­tems of mo­tor­bikes in a park­ing lot in Cowansville. Seven­teen sys­tems were mea­sured with the help of a sound me­ter and six were found to be too loud.

The sound me­ter is a mea­sur­ing tool that the po­lice have been us­ing since 2013 in a three-year long pi­lot project in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the SAAQ. The po­lice will, in the near fu­ture, carry out sound mon­i­tor­ing cam­paigns in the Mem­phrem­a­gog and Saint-Fran­cois MRC’s.

The fine for hav­ing a noisy ex­haust sys­tem to­tals $162, in­clud­ing the ex­tra fees. If driv­ers don’t co­op­er­ate with po­lice when asked to al­low their ve­hi­cle to be tested for sound lev­els, they will re­ceive a fine of $200 which comes to a to­tal of $283 with fees.

Brome-Mis­sisquoi po­lice searched a res­i­dence in Cowansville at the end of May re­gard­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­lated to a string of thefts that oc­curred in schools. Stolen com­puter ma­te­rial was found and a 16 year-old teenager and a 44 year-old woman were ar­rested and charged with break­ing and en­ter­ing.

A sec­ond phase of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion led to the ar­rest of five other people (two mi­nors and three adults) at the be­gin­ning of June and the dis­cov­ery of 25 stolen com­put­ers which be­longed to the Val-des-cerfs and East­ern Town­ships school com­mis- sions.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are still look­ing for an­other thirty or so stolen Ipads which can be iden­ti­fied by their school board in­scrip­tions. Any­one who has any in­for­ma­tion can call the po­lice at 1-800-6594264. There are still about thirty stolen Ipads in circulation that can be iden­ti­fied by their school board la­bels.
