– Lots of meth in Ma­gog

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

Last Thurs­day, the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) stopped a car on Sher­brooke street be­cause of un­paid li­cense plate. The ve­hi­cle was not li­censed, and be­fore it was towed away, the of­fi­cer did a quick search of the ve­hi­cle, find­ing a metham­phetamine tablet. The 26 year-old driver from Sher­brooke was ar­rested and later re­leased to ap­pear later in court. A fine was given to the owner of the ve­hi­cle and re­port will be sent to the SAAQ.

A Ma­gog com­pany was the last vic­tim of fraud when a com­pany from abroad man­dated it to de­posit the cheques of its clients and then trans­fer the money, mi­nus a com­mis­sion, to the United King­dom. An amount of close to $30,000 was trans­ferred and, a few days later, the cheques proved to be fraud­u­lent. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion was opened.

A woman from Ma­gog was the vic­tim of Mi­crosoft fraud. She paid $400 on her credit card for a false ser­vice af­ter re­ceiv­ing a tele­phone call. The RPM would like to re­mind the pop­u­la­tion to never pay an amount like this to a per­son or a com- pany that has con­tacted you, no mat­ter what the rea­son. If some­one needs a ser­vice, they should check the ser­vice providers on their own and then re-con­tact the ser­vice af­ter do­ing the proper re­search and not us­ing the in­for­ma­tion pro­vided by the caller.

Last Fri­day, a ve­hi­cle was stopped on Prin­ci­pale and the driver was with­out

a li­cense, in pos­ses­sion of cannabis, and had an ar­rest war­rant out for him. The As­bestos man was fined for driv­ing with­out a li­cense and the owner of the ve­hi­cle was fined for al­low­ing him to drive. The ve­hi­cle was seized for thirty days. On Satur­day, a man driv­ing a mo­tor­cy­cle was in­jured when he lost con­trol be­cause of a me­chan­i­cal fail­ure. He was taken to the hos­pi­tal with mi­nor in­juries.

On Sun­day, on Prin­ci­pale West, a 53 year-old man from Drum­mondville was ar­rested for pos­ses­sion for crys­tal meth, sev­eral Vi­a­gra and Cialis pills, BGH, a metham­phetamine pill, oxy­codone (OxyCo­tine) and other sub­stances that have to be an­a­lyzed. He was also in pos­ses­sion of con­tra­band cig­a­rettes and re­ceived a fine for that as well. He was kept in de­ten­tion to ap­pear at the court­house the next day. An­other per­son, a 29 year-old man from Ma­gog, was ar­rested for an ar­rest war­rant and found to be in pos­ses­sion of metham­phetamine and cannabis. He was also not re­leased and ap­peared in court the next day.
