Arrested for flooding his ex with texting
A 21-year-old Magog was arrested on Sunday for being too insistent on his ex-wife by flooding him with text messages.
At 11:25 am, officers from the Memphremagog Police Authority (MPR) responded to a complaint of criminal harassment, break and enter, theft and threats and breach of probation.
“The complainant is a young woman who complained to her former lover who could send him several hundred text messages and calls a day,” said Sylvain Guay, a lieutenant at the RPM.
“The suspect was arrested in Magog by the patrol boats and detained for his appearance Monday at the Sherbrooke courthouse.”
The Régie encourages anyone harassed to file a complaint with the police, because all too often there is only the intervention of justice to stop this type of offense, Guay adds.
