Drone on a prison: two Quebecers charged

Drone sur une prison: deux Québécois accusés

Two men from Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines, in Laurentides, were arrested this week for involvement in a network that distributed the drug with a drone above a prison in Kingston, Ontario.

Marc Fontaine, 39 years old, and Nachoua-Hiba Kord, 23, were arraigned Tuesday on several charges, including participation in a criminal organisation, possession of a weapon for dangerous and conspiracy to commit a criminal act.

They were intercepted following a joint investigation by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) and the Ontario provincial Police (OPP), which began on march 24 after a drone had been intercepted flying over the Collins Bay penitentiary.

That night, around 4 a.m., officers of the correctional Service of Canada and the Kingston police had then recovered two individuals near a vehicle and seized a drone, cigars and cannabis.

They had also discovered a parcel containing firearms, marijuana and tobacco.

Two Ontarians, Rachel Chen, and Len Aragon, have also been arrested on Tuesday in relation to this story.

The four accused have been released and will return to the courthouse at Kingston on the 26th of August, has informed through a press OPP.
