“I'm so stressed out. I don't know what to do anymore, I don't know where to turn… This makes no sense!” Daniel Bouchard testified in an interview with TVA Nouvelles.

For the first time, Daniel Bouchard's 2021 Toyota Highlander was parked on the Boulevard des Galeries d'Anjou. Between 6pm and 6.30pm, “When I came to pick up my car, it was gone!” It is said that the thieves stole the said vehicle during the traffic jam. He clarified.

Mr. Bouchard rushed to contact TAG Surveillance, who confirmed a few hours later that her car was located at the corner of Chapanelle and Cremasy in Montreal. “They broke the windows and tore off the roof!” He commented.

Then going to the garage, Mr. He said the amount would have been $11,900 to repair Bouchard's car. A few days later, his car was stolen again, this time at the corner of Saint-Denis and Beaubien streets in Montreal.


He once again contacted TAG and the police, who allegedly accompanied him to collect his stolen vehicle. “My car was hidden in some bushes, at the back of an alley… and with damage and problems… I had to send it back to the garage! It cost me a lot! “Mr. Bouchard said.

Although he can change cars, Mr. Bouchard believes he still has two-and-a-half years left on his rental contract, which could “punish” him. “I have no way. I have the car, but it's not the best. I'm stressed!” he added.

Daniel Bouchard posted a video on his Facebook on Monday from his surveillance cameras that his rental vehicle was stolen on Sunday evening. “At 3am, I hear noises, I wake up and panic. I look out the window and someone is in my car.


In the video, we see a man trying to sit down and try to back out, futilely opening the vehicle's doors. “He closes the door quietly and leaves… 12 minutes later he comes back and opens the doors. It has a button, it's like a key!” said Mr. Bouchard. Fortunately, Mr. Bouchard activated the alarm system, which scared the burglar off. “I was up all night. I didn't know where to turn… Terrible! I had no follow-up from the police. ,'' he testified.

Remember that car theft is a real scourge across the country, with more than 90,000 vehicles stolen last year. In March, Ontario Provincial Police arrested 34 suspects during their historic operation in Montreal to catch these young car thieves.
