René-Charles Quirion La Tribune It was while leaving a residence in Magog that two American hostages were found by the Sûreté du Québec.
The SQ specifies that James Helm Sr, 76, and his wife Sandra Helm, 70, were discovered in a residence on rue Grande-Allée on the edge of Lovering Lake in Magog, around 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
Four individuals were charged on Wednesday in this kidnapping, forcible confinement and extortion case at the Montreal courthouse.
In addition to these charges, Franco D'Onofino, 55, and George Dritsas, 75, of 270 rue Grande-Allée in Magog were charged along with Taylor Laurence Martin d'Akwesasne, 31, and Kosnas Dritsas , 49, from Montreal for having conspired among themselves to commit these crimes.
The prosecutor for criminal proceedings Me Marie-France Drolet opposed the release of the four individuals. They will be back in court on October 6.
