– Thieves es­cape through for­est

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM -

OnSeptem­ber 1st, at 2:30 in the morn­ing, a wit­ness called 911 after hear­ing a noise and see­ing three peo­ple break­ing into the Jean Coutu Phar­macy on St-Pa­trice West, in Ma­gog. The wit­ness saw the sus­pects leave on foot be­fore the po­lice ar­rived who then scoured the area. A sus­pect pick-up was seen on au­toroute ten and when the po­lice turned around to stop the ve­hi­cle, the two pas­sen­gers had got­ten out and headed to a for­est on foot again while the driver was ar­rested. The stolen mer­chan­dise, per­fumes and elec­tron­ics val­ued at more than $15,000, was found in the ve­hi­cle. The Sureté du Que­bec asked for as­sis­tance from the ca­nine di­vi­sion to track down the sus­pects but they are still at large. The Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog is ask­ing the pub­lic to trans­mit any in­for­ma­tion that might lead to the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of the sus­pects at 819 843-3334 or at Echec a crime at 1 800 711-1800.

Also on Septem­ber 1st, SQ of­fi­cers from the des Sources and Val Saint-Fran­cois MRC’s found and de­stroyed around five hun­dred mar­i­juana plants in fields in the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of Saint-Ge­orges, Ham-Sud, Wot­ton and Saint-Camille. No ar­rests took place and the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing.
