On December 10, a joint police effort led to the recovery of four stolen motor vehicles, 8,500 litres of diesel fuel, a large quantity of shop tools and related equipment.
The location of the stolen goods was a result of a joint investigation with the “Service de police de la Ville de Montréal” (SPVM) and the Hawkesbury Detachment Crime Unit of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), which executed a search warrant at a residence of La Grande-Montée Road in the Township of East Hawkesbury.
The search resulted in the recovery of four stolen motor vehicles, including a 24-foot cargo truck containing more than 8,500 liters of diesel fuel, stored in 1,000 liters plastic reservoirs. A large quantity of shop tools and related equipment was also recovered from the residence, allowing investigators to resolve recent break & enter and theft investigations that occurred within the Hawkesbury jurisdiction and the Montreal surrounding areas. The recovered stolen property is being returned to its rightful owners.
The Hawkesbury OPP Crime Unit continue to investigate and has obtained a warrant for the arrest of a 34-year-old Jean-Phillip Dion, also known as Robillard, of East Hawkesbury Township.
If you know the whereabouts of Jean-Phillip Dion, please contact the Hawkesbury OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
The OPP is asking any businesses who had diesel fuel stolen, or anyone with information related to this investigation, to contact the Hawkesbury OPP Crime Unit at 613-632-2729 or 1-888-310-1122.
If you have any information and wish to remain anonymous, you may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.
