The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) has made an arrest November 18 following a series of thefts from backyard sheds in Rigaud over the past few months.
SQ spokesperson Sgt. Joyce Kemp reports Daniel Sigouin, 46, appeared at the Valleyfield Court House November 20 to face accusations of breaking and entering and theft. The suspect was arrested at his home following a report by citizens who recognized their own property in the suspect's house and contacted the police.
In addition to arresting the suspect, the police carried out three searches following this series of robberies to recover several stolen goods including tools, garden equipment, and patio chairs. The police are asking the citizens of Rigaud to check their property and garden sheds to see if they have been robbed.
Objects that may have come from the Rigaud Cemetery have also been recovered.
To report a theft, Rigaud citizens are invited to contact the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges West detachment of the SQ at (450) 456-3883.
