in Feature

STANSTEAD — Sylvain Bergeron, 42, plead not guilty in court today to charges of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Bergeron, who had been working as a security guard at the Stanstead College since 2006, was arrested in Illinois last month after being pulled over outside of Chicago for improper lane usage, and talking on a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle.

Following the traffic stop, more then 900 grams of cocaine were found in the vehicle.

If convicted, he could face a sentence of 6-30 years in prison. He will be back in court on February 24, for a preliminary hearing.

He is currently being held at the Will County jail in Illinois.
