    Man of 27 years appeared in the afternoon and has been accused of harassment and mischief to a vehicle in respect of a man.

    The latter, according to that VAT News has learned, would not have a history of crimes of a sexual nature.

    Flag has also been accused of harassment and death threats against a woman.

    Once again, there would be no link with crimes of a sexual nature.

    He has been released subject to certain conditions.

    William Flag would be part of the group on Facebook “Anonymous Abuse Hunter”, which has 529 members. These people amuseraient to track down people they see as perverts pretending to be young girls or young boys.

    It would seem that Mr. Drapeau used the pseudonym “Jessica Stone” to hunt for suspected paedophiles.
