Station 4 (serving Dollard des Ormeaux):
Station 4 police caught a pair of teenagers in the act of robbing a home in Dollard des Ormeaux Monday afternoon, a police spokesman said. Police arrested an 18-year-old Dollard man and a 16-year-old Pierrefonds boy after getting a call from residents about a break-in in progress at a home on Dauphin Street, said Const. Chantal Castonguay of Montreal police Station 4. The two men attempted to first go out the back door of the home around 3:05 p.m. with a bagful of stolen goods but saw police officers in the backyard before turning back to the front door of the home, where they once more came face to face with officers before re-entering the home briefly, Castonguay said. A moment later, Castonguay said, both men surrendered to police without incident. The two men will be charged with breaking and entering.
Station 3 (serving Pierrefonds, Roxboro, Ste. Genevieve and Ile Bizard):
Station 3 police are looking for a door-to-door fraudster who purports to be collecting money in support of a local community organization after a recent incident involving a skeptical potential victim. The incident occurred Feb. 13 about 5 p.m., when a woman going door to door on Poitier Street in Pierrefonds knocked on a door to collect money for a community organization, said Const. Dan Maheu of Montreal police Station 3. The resident, who was familiar with the organization, went to call them to confirm the suspect's identity. When the resident made the phone call, the suspect fled in a grey four-door Honda Civic sedan. Maheu is advising residents to ask door-to-door fundraisers for identification (most reputable organizations issue them) or call the organization involved before handing over any money. The suspect is a white female who stands about five-foot-seven and weighs 160 pounds. She wore glasses, a winter hat, a hood and had a beauty mark and light blonde hair above her upper lip, Maheu added. Anyone who has an encounter with the woman is asked to contact Montreal police Station 3 at 514-280-0103.
A thief forced a second-floor window in order to break into an Ile Bizard home recently while the owners were out, Station 3 police said. The incident occurred Feb. 15 between 4:15 and 7 p.m. at a home on Du Héron-vert Street in Ile Bizard when the thief climbed the balcony of an adjacent home to gain access to the second-floor bedroom window and forced the window with some sort of breaking-and-entering tool and went through the home, stealing jewelry, cash and other valuables, said Const. Dan Maheu of Montreal police Station 3. It is likely the robber escaped through the garage, police said, because it was unlocked when police arrived on the scene.
