A Grenville, Québec gas station is a crime scene today. At approximately 3:20 a.m. on Thursday morning, firefighters were called to the Shell station on Rue Maple/Route 344. According to Stéphane Tremblay of the Sureté du Québec (SQ), a fire was caused by cutting tools culprits had used to break into the building. They removed an automatic teller machine (ATM), broke it open, and stole an unspecified quantity of cash that was inside it. No merchandise from the IGA Express depanneur was stolen. Tremblay said police are looking for three suspects but details about them are not yet available. SQ crime scene investigators remain at the scene.
The Shell station in Grenville opened this past summer.
