Steven Lefebvre was arrested on Monday in the middle of the afternoon following a police chase undertaken in Magog.

Patrolmen from the Memphremagog Police Authority (RPM) chased a Ford F-150 van carrying an ATV.

The driver would not have stopped at a mandatory stop in front of a police officer on patrol. When he wanted to intercept him, Lefebvre fled to a residential neighborhood where another policeman was traveling.

In front of the second patrol, the driver of the truck turned back. He then collided with the first police car that wanted to intercept him.

The motorist fled via Merry Street, failing to stop in front of mandatory stops, a red light, and a school bus stop in place, narrowly avoiding children crossing the street before taking Highway 10 in the direction of Montreal.

The driver was stopped at exit 78 at Bromont.

The police of Bromont and Granby collaborated with those of the Régie de police Memphrémagog to arrest Lefebvre.

Steven Lefebvre has a criminal record.

He was wanted on arrest warrants issued in Sorel.

The Lefebvre driver’s license was sanctioned by the Automobile Insurance Company of Quebec.

The two vehicles belong to the passenger, a 21-year-old woman with no judicial history.

The woman was released, but will face charges of possession of prescription drugs issued to another person, as well as a $ 486 offense ticket for letting the driver drive while she knew that he had a sanctioned license.
