May 7 – Laval police announced last week they had arrested a third suspect in connection with a string of burglaries, including the botched burglary at The Bay at Carrefour Laval on August 19, 2017. (Caught off guard by a mall security guard at the end of their heist – after having successfully loaded their truck with suitcases stuffed with $2 million worth of stolen merchandise – the trio of thieves dropped most of their stolen loot out of the back of their getaway van as they sped away.)
Keven Denis, 24, faces 4 counts of break-and-entry and larceny in connection with the group’s activities. He was arrested and charged on May 2, and he will remain in custody until his next court date on June 6.
Earlier this year in February, police arrested the first two members of their group: Evens Riodin, 38, and his spouse Gabrielle De Morasse, 30, both residents of St-Lin. The duo faces a total of 15 charges between them. On May 2, Riodin pled guilty to all charges against him.
The bungled Bay job last August led the investigators to link the thieving trio to 10 other robberies they had committed in Terrebonne, Gatineau, and Longueuil.
