Yes­ter­day, the Sureté du Que­bec was called to a fire in Mari­court. When the fire­fight­ers ar­rived at a prop­erty on route 222 to re­spond to a brush fire that was spread­ing to a farm build­ing, they dis­cov­ered a body in the field. The vic­tim could be the owner of the prop­erty, but it has not been con­firmed. A coro­ner’s in­quest is un­der way.

Last Wed­nes­day, the SQ was called when a man left the Coat­i­cook hos­pi­tal in a drunken state and drove off. When an of­fi­cer tried to in­ter­cept the driver in town, the sus­pect sped away down route 141 to­wards St. Hermenegilde where he was stopped at a po­lice block­ade.

The Sureté du Que­bec de l’Estrie held its an­nual Blood Drive last Thurs­day, April 30th, and Fri­day, May 1st, at the Car­refour de l’Estrie. A record 608 donors came out to give blood.
