On Sun­day, Septem­ber 21st, around 2:30 pm, a pa­troller on au­toroute 410 caught a 24 year-old man go­ing more than 185 km per hour on his motorcycle. When he was stopped, the po­lice found that the Sher­brooke res­i­dent`s li­cense was no longer valid be­cause of a pre­vi­ous in­frac­tion. The man re­ceived two hefty fines: $1,326 and 18 in­ap­ti­tude points for ex­ces­sive speed­ing, and $1,889 for driv­ing with­out a valid per­mit. His motorcycle was seized for thirty days. On top of speed­ing and driv­ing with­out a li­cense, there was a pas­sen­ger on board the motorcycle.

Last Wed­nes­day, when of­fi­cers with the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) were mak­ing a rou­tine stop of a Ford Wind­star with two pas­sen­gers, they rec­og­nized one of the pas­sen­gers, a nine­teen year-old man, as a ‘per­son of in­ter­est’ for Im­mi­gra­tion Canada. After com­mu­ni­cat­ing with Im­mi­gra­tion Canada, of­fi­cers learnt that the man was an il­le­gal im­mi­grant. An Im­mi­gra­tion Canada agent spoke with the young man and in­formed him that he was be­ing ar­rested and then asked the RPM to de­tain him un­til Im­mi­gra­tion agents could ques­tion him.

Late Wed­nes­day evening, at around 11:50 pm, the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog re­ceived a call con­cern­ing the theft of a ve­hi­cle on Prin­ci­pale Est, in Magog. While the owner of the dark green Dodge Car­a­van was on her way to a wash­room, she saw her ve­hi­cle be­ing stolen. It has not yet been found and the sus­pect is still at large. Re­mem­ber to lock your car doors!

On Thurs­day, Septem­ber 18th, the RPM found 187 cannabis plants on a prop­erty on the Chemin de la Grand-Ligne, in Or­ford Town­ship. The plants mea­sured an av­er­age of two me­tres high and were spot­ted from a po­lice he­li­copter. A 49 year-old Or­ford Town­ship res­i­dent was ar­rested and then later re­leased to ap­pear in court at a later date, and more ar­rests are ex­pected re­gard­ing this case. The next morn­ing, the RPM ar­rived at a res­i­dence on route 220 in Or­ford Town­ship with a search war­rant. A rou­tine stop by an of­fi­cer three weeks be­fore had be­gun this in­ves­ti­ga­tion. In the garage, the po­lice found a mar­i­juana grow-op of 300 plants. A 31 year-old man and a 25 year-old woman were ar­rested and charged with cannabis pro­duc­tion, pos­ses­sion with in­tent to traf­fic, and the theft of elec­tric­ity.
