(Les Cèdres) A night walker was arrested early Sunday morning in connection with a series of robbery attempts at night in Les Cèdres, Montérégie.
The suspect is a 17-year-old boy with no criminal record. He faces charges of attempting to steal from vehicles or vehicles, and trespassing at night. He also received a ticket for disobeying a curfew order in Quebec.
According to information sent by Sûreté du Québec (SQ), a citizen heard a noise and surprised the offender who tried to board his vehicle at 2:45 p.m.
The witness would have immediately called the police following the escape of the suspect who was walking at a good distance.
Once there, police took advantage of the new ice sheet trail and followed the suspect into the Monte Maynard area.
After conducting searches, police observed that the man had gone to about fifteen places in the Montée Ménard area, Boulevard de la Cité des Jeunes, Chemin Saint-Dominique and Rue Leduc.
SQ’s spokesman, Sergeant Audrey Ann Piloto, wanted to greet the citizens of Les Cedres because all the doors of the vehicles approached by the suspect appeared to be locked.
