The OPP have some advice for Pokemon Go players. Trying to catch elusive Pokemon monster characters is not an acceptable excuse for trespassing.There have been reports of players trespassing on public and private property around the province, including OPP detachments and parking lots. Pokemon Go players are urged to respect private property laws while enjoying their game and also to be sure there are no safety risks where they are going to hunt the anime monsters. If you’ve gotta catch ’em all, be safe doing it. —photo OPP

Démantèlement d’un réseau de distribution à Alfred Deux personnes ont été arrêtées le 8 juillet à Alfred, lors d’une opération de la Police provinciale de l’Ontario sur la rue Saint-Philippe. Sur les lieux les policiers ont saisi des pilules de méthamphétamine et d’hydromorphone, de la cocaïne, de l’argent comptant et de l’emballage. Salah Siberia, 50 ans, a trois chefs d’accusation de possession de drogue en vue d’en faire le trafic contre lui, en plus d’un chef de trafic de cocaïne. Ce n’est pas la première fois que ce dernier à des problèmes avec la loi. En septembre 2014, il avait été fouillé à un barrage routier à Hawkesbury et était alors en possession de méthamphétamine et d’hydromorphone. Sa récente arrestation est donc un bris de probation et cinq autres chefs d’accusation ont été ajoutés à son dossier pour cette raison, ce qui lui a valu un séjour en prison en attendant son audience sur sa mise en liberté sous caution. Lors de la même opération, Mélanie Brazeau, 37 ans, de Hawkesbury, a également été arrêtée pour trafic de cocaïne. Elle devra répondre de ses actes le 4 août prochain à la prison de L’Orignal. – Stéphane Lajoie
