A26year-old man was ar­rested on April 23rd, in Sher­brooke, in con­nec­tion with child pornog­ra­phy. Pierre-Em­manuel Monast ap­peared in the Sher­brooke Court House the same day to face charges of pos­ses­sion, pro­duc­tion and ac­cess­ing child pornog­ra­phy, as well as extortion and mak­ing threats. Of­fi­cers with the Sureté du Que­bec, and also mem­bers of the spe­cial ESEI team that in­ves­ti­gates the sex­ual ex­ploita­tion of chil­dren on the in­ter­net, searched the sus­pect’s home and com­puter ma­te­rial was seized to be an­a­lyzed.

The Equipe d’en­quetes sur l’ex­ploita­tion sex­uelle des en­fants sur in­ter­net (ESEI) brings to­gether Sureté du Que­bec and RCMP in­ves­ti­ga­tors. Since its found­ing in 2003, close to three hun­dred ar­rests have been made in con­nec­tion with the sex­ual ex­ploita­tion of chil­dren. Any in­for­ma­tion that the public may have about the sus­pect can be called in to the SQ’s Cen­trale de l’in­for­ma­tion crim­inelle at 1 800 6594264. The public can also alert the po­lice to any sit­u­a­tion of sex­ual ex­ploita­tion of chil­dren on the in­ter­net at cy­beraide.ca.

SQ of­fi­cers seized 55 car­tons of il­le­gal cig­a­rettes

in an apart­ment on Prin­ci­pale North, in Rich­mond, on April 23rd. The po­lice also found and seized two il­le­gally stored firearms in the apart­ment. The owner of the apart­ment, who was a 74 year-old man, was ques­tioned by po­lice and will face charges re­lated to the tax­ing of tobacco and the firearms. The op­er­a­tion, which in­volved a dozen of­fi­cers and two po­lice dogs, fol­lowed a short in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter the po­lice re­ceived in­for­ma­tion from the public.

Three women were ar­rested on sep­a­rate oc­ca­sions, over the week­end, for drink­ing and driv­ing. On Satur­day evening a 56 yearold Sher­brooke woman en­tered a Wind­sor restau­rant in an ine­bri­ated state. The po­lice were called when she left the restau­rant in her ve­hi­cle, de­spite cit­i­zens try­ing to stop her, and she was soon in­ter­cepted by the po­lice. The sec­ond woman was a 44 year-old from Nor­bertville who was stopped and ar­rested in Rich­mond, on the 26th, af­ter po­lice no­ticed her driv­ing er­rat­i­cally. Also on Sun­day night, a woman in her six­ties missed a curve in St. De­nis de Bromp­ton and hit a hy­dro pole. The elec­tric wires fell on her ve­hi­cle, which was a to­tal loss, and she had to re­main in the car un­til the elec­tric­ity was shut off. The driver ac­tu­ally tried to drive off even af­ter the of­fi­cers told her not to move be­cause of the elec­tri­cal wires. She was even­tu­ally taken to the hos­pi­tal with mi­nor wounds and a blood test was done to de­ter­mine her al­co­hol level.
