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.
