Po­lice News – Fol­low-up of July hi­tand-run

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Mem­phré­m­a­gog MRC

On July 18th, 2015, around 8:45 am, a run­ner was hit by the mir­ror on the pas­sen­ger side of a sport util­ity ve­hi­cle on the 13th rang in Or­ford near the in­ter­sec­tion with Des Mois­sons. The run­ner was head­ing north when he was hit and the driver of the white ve­hi­cle con­tin­ued with­out stop­ping to help the in­jured run­ner. The run­ner brought him­self to the hos­pi­tal be­fore con­tact­ing the po­lice.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tor with the Régie de po­lice de Mem­phré­m­a­gog (RPM) con­tacted car deal­ers in the area and was able to iden­tify the ve­hi­cle as a Hyundai Santa Fe built be­tween 2001 and 2006.

Af­ter a press release was sent out de­scrib­ing the ve­hi­cle, four in­de­pen­dent wit­nesses con­tacted the RPM re­port­ing a ve­hi­cle match­ing the de­scrip­tion which was owned by a Ste-Cather­ine de Hat­ley con­struc­tion com­pany and usu­ally driven by a 27 year-old man from the same town. The ve­hi­cle was taken for ev­i­dence and the man was ar­rested and ques­tioned by the po­lice on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 3rd. He was later re­leased and the in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues.

Coat­i­cook Sureté du Que­bec of­fi­cers car­ried out an op­er­a­tion ear­lier in the month on the hill on Child Street. Dur­ing the op­er­a­tion, thir­teen fines were given out, mostly for speed­ing. Also, one speeder was caught do­ing more than 100 km/ hr in a zone of 50. The fine came to $802 and ten in­ap­ti­tude points for the man who was in his for­ties.

The Ser­vice des en­quetes re­gion­als de la Sureté du Que­bec ar­rested a Sher­brooke man, last Fri­day, in con­nec­tion with child pornog­ra­phy. Twenty-two year-old Mathieu Du­mont ap­peared at the Sher­brooke Court House in the af­ter­noon to face charges of im­port­ing child pornog­ra­phy and ac­cess­ing child pornog­ra­phy. The po­lice car­ried out a search in the af­ter­noon at his home where com­puter ma­te­rial was re­trieved to be an­a­lyzed.
