On Thursday, September 9, three Montrealers were arrested by police officers from the Sûreté du Québec for being involved in a robbery that occurred around 3 p.m. that day. The incident took place at a store on boulevard Antonio-Barrette in Notre-Dame-des-Prairies.
"Armed individuals broke into the store and confined employees and customers. They stole items and then fled in a car. Fortunately, no one in the store was injured," Sûreté du Québec confirmed in a press release.
We're told that their vehicle was quickly located, but when the suspect attempted to flee from the police, "the driver reportedly lost control of the vehicle and collided with a school bus near the intersection of Highway 131 and Firestone Street."
Luckily, there were again no injuries.
The suspects are young males aged 17, 18 and 19 years old from Montreal. On Thursday, they were apprehended by police and brought to the police station for questioning.
They were set to appear in court in Joliette this past Friday on several charges. MTL Blog reached out to the Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales for information about the three suspects' court appearances and will update this article once a response is received.

While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
