The Sûreté du Québec’s Service des enquêtes sur les crimes majeurs (major crimes investigation service) is asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects linked to a series of robberies which occurred over the last few months in the Montérégie and Laurentian regions.

One of the targeted establishments is located in Grenville, on rue Principale. The robbery occurred on November 25, 2017.

The masked suspects have already showed up in a handful of other licensed establishments carrying firearms, holding employees and patrons at gunpoint before escaping with money.

The suspects are both male, speak both French and English and measure 5’6″ (1.68 m) and 6’1″ (1.85 m).

Any information related to these robberies can be communicated confidentially to the Sûreté du Québec by calling 1-800-659-4264.
