A 38-year-old man from Lachute has been arrested after a chase with Sûreté du Québec (SQ) officers in Argenteuil.
Just after 2 a.m. Thursday, officers tried to stop a vehicle for a Highway Safety Code violation at the corner of Rue Principale and Avenue Hamford in Lachute.
The driver refused to stop, and a short chase ensued along Rue Principale, until it ended in front of home on Montée Robert in Brownsburg-Chatham.
Officers arrested the driver and while searching the vehicle, found nearly 100 tablets of a methamphetamine-like substance, small amounts of hashish, cannabis, and a prohibited weapon.
The suspect was to appear in court in Saint-Jérôme on Thursday.
According to the SQ, the suspect could face charges of drug possession, dangerous driving, escape, gun-related offences, as well as breach of probation.
The suspect’s vehicle was sized. He could also face over $2,400 in fines, including three demerit points on his driver’s licence for failing to stop at a red light, and for driving with a sanctioned license.
