Investigators from the MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais Public Security Service arrested Bennett Smith, 38 years old, from Gatineau, following a break and enter that occurred on February 26 at the Beausoleil Home Hardware business in the Wakefield sector of La Pêche.
The investigation, which went smoothly, led to the recovery of all the equipment stolen during the break and enter in the Hull sector of the City of Gatineau. The subject is still detained and must return to court on Wednesday, March 8 for his release hearing.
Despite this arrest, the investigation remains active since the police believe that the subject was accompanied by accomplices during the event and are trying to identify them. Other similar cases that occurred in the Outaouais and even in Ontario could also be linked to the arrested man.
