- Rou­tine stop leads to drug bust

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Staff

Last Tues­day , just after 3:00 pm, a pa­troller with the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog made a rou­tine stop on a ve­hi­cle on route 220 in Or­ford Town­ship. The driver did not have a li­cense on him and iden­ti­fied him­self as the owner of the ve­hi­cle. The

of­fi­cer im­me­di­ately in­formed the driver that giv­ing false in­for­ma­tion would not help the sit­u­a­tion. Then the driver gave his real name and ad­mit­ted that his li­cense had been sus­pended for two cases of driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol and that he was await­ing the process of a third, sim­i­lar of­fence. At that point he was ar­rested.

Be­cause the smell of mar­i­juana was com­ing from the ve­hi­cle, of­fi­cers checked the in­te­rior of the car and found seven grams of cannabis, twenty-seven grams of hashish, and fifty-one metham­phetamine pills. After the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the po­lice had rea­son to be­lieve that the sus­pect was sell­ing drugs from his home in Bon­sec­ours. A search war­rant was ob­tained that evening and po­lice searched the res­i­dence, as­sisted by the Sureté du Que­bec. On the premises, the po­lice found four green­house cannabis grow-ops. Twenty-one mar­i­juana plants were seized, ten grams of co­caine, one hun­dred and twen­tytwo metham­phetamine pills, 2.2 kilo­grams of bulk cannabis and one hun­dred and thirty-one grams of ‘magic mush­rooms’.

The Corps of im­pe­rial Fron­tiers­men, “D” Squadron, Magog, Que­bec. “D” Squadron was formed in 1939 to pro­vide se­cu­rity for in­dus­try and area in­fra­struc­ture con­sid­ered vi­tal to the war ef­fort.
