Po­lice News – Watch out for deer!

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Dur­ing hunt­ing sea­son and with the re­turn of cold weather, col­li­sions on the roads with deer have in­creased. The Sureté du Que­bec would like to re­mind driv­ers to slow down when they see deer signs, when driv­ing along forested roads and where the veg­e­ta­tion bor­ders the road, mak­ing it im­pos­si­ble to see the deer be­fore they run onto the road. In the East­ern Town­ships, there are lit­er­ally hun­dreds of col­li­sions with deer ev­ery year, most of­ten in the spring and fall. Th­ese hap­pen almost ev­ery­where on the ter­ri­tory, even in the mid­dle of towns.

Of­fi­cers with the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) were busy over the week­end, be­ing called to in­ter­vene in ten cases of do­mes­tic fight­ing, fam­ily vi­o­lence or for prob­lems be­tween in­di­vid­u­als. No ar­rests were made. Four women, in four dif­fer­ent files, were ar­rested for cannabis pos­ses­sion and two men were ar­rested for drunk driv­ing, all in Magog.
