In addition, a chase was undertaken on the Link Road in Gros-Bois, L’Escalier by an ADSU team at approximately 11:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, June 12, to catch up with a gray Nissan car. The car was driven by Sahil Sookun, a 21 year old resident of L’Escalier. The suspect car was driving towards the Gros-Bois traffic circle. When the car arrived near a cane field, the ADSU officers noticed that the driver threw an object out of the window.

The police officers lost sight of the Nissan. This object, which was recovered, is a cylindrical lid containing synthetic drugs and a plastic containing 10 doses of heroin. At around 14:30 on the same day, a police raid was conducted at the home of the suspect. He was arrested. A search of his home revealed a piece of paper wrapped in heroin and a translucent plastic container of methadone.

The suspect led ADSU officers to Deux-Bras, New-Grove where he abandoned the car. Sahil Sookun was arraigned in Souillac Court this Monday morning, June 13, where he faces a provisional charge of drug trafficking.
