Four burglars arrested following an upswing in West Island luxury home invasions.

On June 2, 2023, the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) arrested four suspects in connection with a series of break-ins in homes on the West Island and in areas north and south of Montreal. The suspects, aged 21, 30, 37, and 38, were apprehended following a break-in outside Montreal. During their arrest, $95,000 worth of jewelry was seized from their vehicle. Further investigation into one of the suspect's homes led to the seizure of additional jewelry worth over $100,000.

Montreal-area neighborhoods have experienced a significant increase in break-ins, specifically those targeting luxury homes. The SPVM investigation team utilized various techniques to identify this group of criminals, and the four individuals apprehended are believed to be part of a structured group of burglars. The investigation is ongoing to determine if the suspects are linked to other break-ins in different areas of Montreal.

Anyone with information about these break-ins or other related incidents is encouraged to call 911 or their local police station. Reports can also be submitted anonymously and confidentially to Info-Crime Montréal at 514 393-1133 or through the report form available on
