Ecstasy, alcohol keep Masset police busy

  • Mar. 5, 2008 7:00 p.m.

Several youth wound up in the Masset hospital after taking ecstacy in combination with alcohol say Masset RCMP. Constable Chad Chamberlain said police were kept busy over the weekend responding to numerous complaints about intoxicated individuals, many involving ecstasy or “E” as the drug is known on the street. Cst. Chamberlain says officers managed to speak with several local people and confirm that “E” or a similar substance was available in town over the weekend. “Keeping your kids and community safe from illicit drugs is a community responsibility,” says Cst. Chamberlain. Anyone with information regarding the weekend’s incidents is asked to call the RCMP at 626-3991 or anonymously to Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Police also responded to a complaint of an intoxicated male on Feb. 26. He was bound by a no alcohol condition of bail and was charged with breaching his conditions. RCMP also issued a 24 hour suspension after a driver failed a roadside screening test, despite recent awareness regarding impaired driving, said Cst. Chamberlain.
