Last Fri­day, Sureté du Que­bec of­fi­cers in­ter­cepted a sus­pect ve­hi­cle at the in­ter­sec­tion of au­toroutes 10 and 35, and then ques­tioned a man from Og­den in his six­ties. The sus­pect will be im­pli­cated in an il­le­gal to­bacco net­work op­er­at­ing in the Og­den area. Dur­ing the search of his ve­hi­cle, the po­lice found one hun­dred and twenty plas­tic Ziploc type bags con­tain­ing two hun­dred cig­a­rettes each, seiz­ing the cig­a­rettes along with the ve­hi­cle.

The Sher­brooke Po­lice Ser­vice re­leased the lat­est statis­tics on crim­i­nal­ity, pro­vided by the Cana­dian Cen­tre for Jus­tice Statis­tics, which showed a de­crease in vi­o­lent crime in Sher­brooke of 6% in 2013. All of the cat­e­gories of vi­o­lent crime went down be­tween 2 % and 16%. The most preva­lent vi­o­lent crimes in Sher­brooke are as­sault, crim­i­nal ha­rass­ment and sex­ual as­sault.
