Firefighters from this town in Montérégie were called to rue des Trembles between Friday and Saturday at 1:50 p.m. after a fire broke out at the home of influential mobster Gregory Woolley.

A Harley-Davidson motorcycle used by the Kingpin during a trip with Hales in May is visible to the right of the garage.
A fire scene technician from the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) was, according to our information, asked by firefighters to help determine the cause of the fire.
It is not yet known what caused the fire, whether it was a fire or not. The Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu police department and the city’s fire department did not return our calls and emails on Saturday.
Bullets on the neighbor
A few months ago, in early May, the Woolley-Huot couple’s house next door was mistakenly targeted. A bullet hole in the front of the store and casings on the floor were found after the explosions.
A few weeks later, new casings were discovered by a resident of a field near the employer’s property.
According to our sources, everything leads us to believe that Woolley was targeted during the two incidents and that we were trying to send him a message.
