The police officer, aged 29, appeared today at the St-Jean-sur-Richelieu courthouse, to formally facing charges of breach of trust, obstruction of justice, unauthorized use of a computer and drug trafficking.

Mr. Guenette-Grégoire was arrested for drug trafficking. We're talking about Schedule 1, so we're talking about cocaine. There is still an ongoing investigation in various locations. So, it is certain that there are additional charges to come, said Me Clémence Giroux, prosecutor at the Directorate of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions.

According to our information, the Police Standards Department of the Sûreté du Québec launched an investigation at the beginning of the year after receiving information about the agent's actions.

The evidence gathered in recent weeks therefore allowed the SQ to lead to the arrest of Miguel Guenette-Grégoire, in St -Jean-sur-Richelieu.
