Po­lice News – Cows es­cape to swim in lake

Stanstead Journal - - EDITORIAL / LETTERS / COLUMNS / COMMENT -

Last Fri­day, around noon, the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) ar­rested a 52 year-old man for break­ing con­di­tions. The man was sup­posed to stay at least ten me­ters from his for­mer part­ner’s home but he was found at the lim­its of her prop­erty film­ing with a cell phone. On Sun­day, around 12:30 pm, the RPM re­ceived a call about a herd of cows seen in the wa­ters of Lake Mem­phrem­a­gog in the Austin area. The cows had bro­ken through their fence to go and have a nice swim in the lake. The farmer was able to round up his cows and he fixed the fence, and all ended well.

Late last Fri­day night, there was a wave of crim­i­nal fires set be­tween 11:00 pm and 2:30 am, around the City of Sher­brooke. The seven fires were started in rolling garbage and re­cy­cling bins, most caus­ing lit­tle dam­age ex­cept for two of the fires that dam­aged sheds. Fol­low­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the Sher­brooke po­lice, a man was ar­rested on Septem­ber 18th.

The Sureté du Que­bec’s Op­er­a­tion Ci­saille con­tin­ues in the Town­ships. In Woburn, po­lice found and dis­man­tled a grow-op in a barn where 350 mar­i­juana plants were grow­ing. One sus­pect was ar­rested. Ear­lier in Septem­ber, a team of seven of­fi­cers of the Coat­i­cook MRC spent three days erad­i­cat­ing plants, find­ing more than 5,300 plants in Mart­inville, Comp­ton and St-Hermenegilde. Last week, more than 1000 cannabis plants were erad­i­cated in ten dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions in the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of St-Valere, St-Al­bert, Kingsey Falls, Ste-Clothilde de Hor­ton and Vic­to­ri­av­ille. Any­one who sees sus­pect ac­tiv­i­ties can call Echec au crime at 1 800 711-1800.
