Police have arrested a driver who had aroused the suspicions as he travelled with a vehicle “heavily” involved in an accident, in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, Sunday evening.
A citizen contacted the emergency services shortly before 23 h, to indicate the presence of a man of 25 years walking on the rue Lionel-Groulx, close to the street, slash-and-Burn, to a vehicle particularly damaged.
The witness has mentioned that the bumper was in an accident and one wheel in the front seemed to want to “land”.
Patrol of the police of Quebec are quickly arrived at the scene, but the driver fled on foot.
The canine unit has been put to use to find it, but finally it is the suspect himself who comes to peace officers about an hour later when he returned to the vicinity of his vehicle.
The police have proceeded to arrest a little after midnight for driving while impaired by drugs and submitted to the test of an agent evaluator.
Subsequently, the police located a trailer that was damaged in the vicinity of the place of arrest, on the rue Saint-Félix, including the damage that might match those found on the vehicle of a suspect. The investigators envisage that it could be the author of a hit and run.
Monday morning, a man of 25 years was still in detention and was scheduled to appear later in the day.
