Dur­ing the night of Fe­bru­ary 19th, a Ma­gog busi­ness on Sher­brooke Street was bro­ken into. One or more peo­ple forced the door of a stor­age shed to steal more than $1000 in food. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the pa­trollers and de­tec­tives with the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) quickly led to the ar­rest of Ber­trand Lee Buzzell, a 35 year-old Ma­gog man with prior ar­rests dat­ing back to 1995.

Af­ter a search of his home on St. Joseph Street on Fe­bru­ary 23rd, Mr. Buzzell was ar­rested, caught in the act of cook­ing some of the stolen meat. More food items from the tar­geted restau­rant were found, such as meat, seafood, drinks, and desserts. All the food items were marked with the restau­rant’s logo.

Ber­tand Lee Buzzell was ac­cused of break­ing and en­ter­ing, theft, break­ing pro­ba­tion, pos­ses­sion of a small quan­tity of mar­i­juana and cannabis resin, and pos­ses­sion of a pro­hib­ited weapon, a tele­scopic stick.

An­other in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the theft of around $150 from the coffee ma­chine at the Ma­gog li­brary, which oc­curred on Fe­bru­ary 14th, 2016, was be­ing con­ducted at the time of Mr. Buzzell’s ar­rest and, be­cause he was linked to this crime, he was charged with it as well. The coffee ma­chine re­ceived about $300 worth of dam­age dur­ing the theft.

For the mo­ment, the sus­pect is be­ing kept in de­ten­tion.
