A “mentally ill and armed” man wanted by Lewis police was arrested after a high-speed police chase near Saint-Hyacinthe.
Vincent Diegel, 31, who lives in Lewis, reportedly made a death threat to his parents Tuesday evening.
In this context, around 9:20 pm, officers went to the RDL Harmony in Charney, where they believed the suspect had detained himself.
A security perimeter was established in the surrounding area to protect civilians during the intervention. Peacekeepers, however, quickly discovered that the person was not at home.
At 12:30 p.m., Lewis police asked the public for help in locating the man in question who was traveling in the green 2004 Land Rover Ranger.
Police asked the public to be careful not to approach him as he was ‘mentally ill’. [et] May be carrying a weapon.
The weapons that were usually in his house were also not available.
Propensity and accident
He was finally found at 1 p.m., traveling east of Highway 20, near Saint-Hélène-de-Bagot, about 150 kilometers.
The chase began when he saw the suspect police coming in his direction.
“He returned to the freeway and headed west again before making his high-speed escape. The peaks were reached at 150km / h,” said Séreté du Québec (SQ), a spokesman for Stéphane Tremblay.
Officers lost track of him as he exited 150, and was relocated to Route 224 a few minutes later.
Mr. for flight, dangerous driving and pursuit. Tagil and the second person who came with him were arrested by SQ. But other allegations could be added in connection with the investigation by Lewis police.
This frantic pursuit is reminiscent of what happened at the beginning of the month, beginning in Beaumont, Saudier-Appalach, and ending in Brampton, Ontario.
Lovepreet Singh, a 27-year-old man, was in suspense with police for 850 kilometers on April 6 at 9am. Fortunately, no one was injured in the escape.
