On July 3rd, around 7:00 pm, an 82 year-old man liv­ing in a Ma­gog se­niors res­i­dence was re­ported as miss­ing. Suf­fer­ing from Alzheimer’s, the man was found thanks to the res­i­dent of an apart­ment build­ing on Du­moulin Street who dis­cov­ered him sleep­ing near the stairs in­side the build­ing. He was safe and sound and was taken back to his res­i­dence. For three hours businesses, su­per­mar­kets, bars, the hospi­tal, taxis and Ma­gog fire­fight­ers col­lab­o­rated with the Regie de Po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) in look­ing for the man.

A Stanstead Town­ship res­i­dent got a big ticket while speed­ing on au­toroute 10 last Thurs­day in the Saint Elie d’Or­ford area. Driv­ing more than 160 km/hr in a 100 kilo­me­tre zone, the driver re­ceived a fine of $1,100 and re­ceived 14 demerit points. He also had his driver’s per­mit taken away for seven days.

On July 3rd, in Ma­gog, at 2:30 in the morn­ing, a 49 year-old woman was seen tak­ing con­struc­tion ma­te­rial from a build­ing site by a wit­ness. The woman was us­ing a bi­cy­cle and a small trailer for a child to steal lum­ber when she was con­fronted by the wit­ness. She had al­ready loaded two 2 x 6 planks and was in the mid­dle of load­ing a twelve foot long beam. Sur­prised, the woman told the wit­ness her name and then left. The wit­ness then called the po­lice and gave them her name and the RPM went to the area of town where she lived (she was known to the po­lice) and found her with the bike and trailer as she was ar­riv­ing home. She was ar­rested for theft and later re­leased, promis­ing to ap­pear in court.
