Po­lice News

Last Thurs­day, around 9:30 pm, the Sureté du Que­bec was alerted about an armed rob­bery in a de­pan­neur on the Vale Perkins Road, in Pot­ton. At the site, the sus­pect asked for the money from the cash with a gun in his hands. The sus­pect then left with­out any money. The SQ re­ceived a sec­ond call a few mo­ments later from ci­ti­zens who had fol­lowed the sus­pect and made a ‘ci­ti­zen’s ar­rest’ of a sort. The 26 year-old man ap­peared at the Granby Court House the fol­low­ing day.

Last Thurs­day, at the be­gin­ning of the af­ter­noon, a dozen of­fi­cers with the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog and two in­ves­ti­ga­tors with the Sureté du Que­bec took part in a search in a cannabis plan­ta­tion on the Milling­ton Road, in Austin, and in a res­i­dence in Bolton East. Dur­ing the op­er­a­tion the po­lice seized 273 cannabis plants be­tween one and one and a half me­ters high and grow­ing equip­ment and ar­rested a sus­pect at his res­i­dence in Bolton East. The 60 year-old man was re­leased un­der con­di­tion to ap­pear in court un­der the ac­cu­sa­tions of grow­ing cannabis and im­proper stor­age of a firearm.

Also last Thurs­day, the RPM ar­rested a 67 year-old woman for drink­ing and driv­ing. Be­cause it was her fifth of­fense and her third break­ing of con­di­tions, she was kept de­tained to ap­pear at the Sher­brooke Court House the next day. Her li­cense was sus­pended for ninety days and her ve­hi­cle was seized. Later that day, around 6:40 pm, a 52 year-old man was ar­rested for the same of­fense on Merry South, in Ma­gog and, just af­ter mid­night, a third ar­rest for drink­ing and driv­ing took place when RPM pa­trollers saw a ve­hi­cle driv­ing in the wrong di­rec­tion on an exit of the au­toroute. A 32 yearold man from Granby was ar­rested.

On Fri­day, around 4:00 pm on Comeau Street, in Ma­gog, a 51 year-old man got phys­i­cal with a woman over money. The woman had moved in with the sus­pect a few days be­fore and wanted to leave. Af­ter be­ing as­saulted, the woman fled to a neigh­bour’s home. The sus­pect fol­lowed and threat­ened her again. The po­lice were called and ar­rested the man for as­sault. Two driv­ers were ar­rested for drink­ing and driv­ing, a man from Sher­brooke and one from the Beauce. On Sat­ur­day, around 12:30 pm, a driver backed up into a ditch on Prin­ci­pale West, in Ma­gog, and tried to get out on his own. He didn’t want to in­volve the po­lice for a rea­son, he didn’t have a li­cense, the plate on the ve­hi­cle had been stolen in Ot­tawa and he had no in­sur­ance. The man had been re­leased from prison un­der con­di­tion not to con­sume al­co­hol, but he had done this also. He was taken to the Sher­brooke prison.

RPM of­fi­cers were out in full force for the be­gin­ning of school, on Mon­day, watch­ing traf­fic in school zones at the stops, the pedes­trian cross­ings, and for speed­ing.
