Last week, a van left running was robbed in Longueuil. The only problem was that there were 3 kids inside! When the suspect realized the situation, he jumped ship.
Police in Longueuil are asking for help from the public to identify the thief who is about 30 years old, Caucasian and wore a dark coat and black hoodie.
The van was parked in a daycare parking lot. He just opened the door and took off with the black Honda Odyssey with tinted windows, on February 25, just before 6 PM.
Thankfully, the kids were unharmed. Since the van’s windows were tinted, the thief likely didn’t notice the kids in the back. But, then the kids started to scream and the suspect got out and ran off at 201 rue Coulonge.
After the terrifying event, it was discovered that a laptop, a tablet and other items were missing from the vehicle.
Obviously the lesson here is to never leave kids in a vehicle unattended, not even for a minute.
