On November 11, around 3:30 a.m., three of the company’s cranes were set ablaze by three suspects who illegally entered the facility from the rear of the lot. The first two poured gasoline on the vehicles, while the third set them alight with flares on the road. Another crane belonging to Remorquage Météor was set on fire on November 19, also around 3:30 am, on a street near an employee’s home.

Information collected by the police so far appears to indicate that the fires were related to a dispute over towing territories on the island of Montreal.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about these events or individuals to go to the local police station or contact Info-Crime Montréal anonymously at 514-393-1133, or using the form at infocrimemontreal.ca .
