Province wants trafficker's money, home
Now that a Laval man has been convicted of drug charges, the province wants his money and his house.
When police raided Serge Pollard's home in Laval last year looking for drugs, they found $370,000 bundled in plastic in a sports bag, almost as much hidden in a piece of furniture and $600,000 in safety deposit boxes in his wife's name.
The province wants all of it, a total of 1.3 million dollars cash plus the house, valued at $650,000. It is arguing before the courts that although some of the cash was in the convict's wife's safety deposit boxes and the deed for the house is in the name of a relative, it all should be seen as the proceeds of crime.
