LastWed­nes­day, Sûreté du Québec of­fi­cers with the Haut St-Fran­cois MRC post car­ried out a search on a prop­erty on Brook­bury Road, in Bury, where a 55 year-old man was sus­pected of be­ing in­volved in the grow­ing of cannabis. About fifty ma­ture cannabis plants were seized on the prop­erty, as well as 1.5 kilo­grams of mar­i­juana that was dry­ing. The sus­pect was ar­rested and ap­peared the next day in court. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about cannabis pro­duc­tion can call 1 800 659-4264 or 1 800 711-1800.

Last Thurs­day morn­ing, Septem­ber 17th, a col­li­sion oc­curred be­tween a ve­hi­cle and a cy­clist on the Sweede Road, in Comp­ton, around 7:00 in the morn­ing. The cy­clist and the ve­hi­cle were both headed in the di­rec­tion of Water­ville when the ve­hi­cle hit the cy­clist. It’s pos­si­ble that the driver of the ve­hi­cle was tem­po­rar­ily blinded by the sun. The 58 year-old woman was taken to the CHUS with se­ri­ous head in­juries while the driver of the ve­hi­cle was un­hurt.

The ac­ci­dent oc­curred on a dirt road and the ve­hi­cle was not go­ing fast, how­ever, the cy­clist was not wear­ing a hel­met.
