In recent weeks, police officers from the Sûreté du Québec of the MRC Rimouski-Neigette and the Major Crimes Investigation Division of Rimouski have made no fewer than six arrests related to drug trafficking.

On June 13, police arrested Ylénor Côté, 23, from Rimouski. He appeared in court and remained in custody. The man could face charges of cocaine trafficking and possession for the purpose of trafficking. Two other individuals, aged 21 and 43, were arrested and released for further proceedings. They could face charges related to possession and trafficking of narcotics.

Then, on June 21, police arrested Anthony Laforge, a 22-year-old man from Rimouski. He appeared in court and could face charges related to cocaine trafficking and possession of narcotics.

Then on June 26, police arrested a 20-year-old local man. He was released for further proceedings and could face charges of cocaine trafficking and breach of probation.

Finally, on July 2, police arrested a 35-year-old man from Rimouski. He was released for further proceedings. He could face charges of trafficking cocaine and methamphetamine, in addition to possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine.

These operations resulted in the seizure of a certain quantity of cocaine, hashish, methamphetamines, ecstasy, illicit cannabis, contraband tobacco, trafficking equipment and counterfeit currency.

The investigations, which began in February, particularly targeted drug trafficking in various licensed establishments in Rimouski.

It should be noted that it was information received from the public that enabled these operations to be carried out.

The Sûreté du Québec reminds that any information relating to drug trafficking can be communicated at any time, confidentially, to the Sûreté du Québec Criminal Information Center at 1-800 659-4264.
