The police report for the Haut-Saint-Laurent Sûreté du Québec has filled up over the past few days with multiple car accidents due to icy roads, the arrest of a wanted individual and a hit and run causing injury.

Thursday morning, December 22 was a difficult time for four drivers who lost control of their vehicles due to weather. One 22 year old driver from Saint-Chrysostome seemed to have paid for her inexperience when her car drove off the road on rang Saint-Joseph. She was slightly injured but refused transportation to hospital.

A hit and run was reported on Route 209 in Saint-Chrysostome on Saturday, December 17. A forty-seven year old driver suffered minor injuries when his car was broadsided by a "Ford  F-150". The driver of the white pickup truck fled the scene without leaving his address and is considered a suspect. Anyone with information regarding this incident can contact the Sûreté du Québec at 450 829-2887.

Wanted and Found

An individual from Sainte-Barbe, who was wanted in connection with two warrants, was arrested at his home by the police from the  Haut-Saint-Laurent MRC Station. The fifty-two  year old man had over four grams of cannabis at his house and will face charges in court for possession of narcotics.

During the afternoon of Friday, December 16 a young, 27 year old woman was arrested by police on route 132 in Saint-Anicet. The resident of Saint-Anicet was driving although her license had been suspended and her car had been taken off the road.
