The Service de police de l'agglomération de Longueuil (SPAL) are looking for potential victims or witnesses for more information about a man who was recently arrested for falsely posing as a peace officer and was inevitably charged with theft for stealing parts of a uniform. In the photos below you can see the man putting on the shirt of the Longueuil Police. He also stole a badge.
The man's name is Tommy Maheux Turcotte and the incident occurred on Sunday, January 19, 2020, around 1 a.m., where he was seen at a bar in Brossard speaking with young women and making a point of mentioning he was a police officer while showing off the stolen badge.
The SPAL also notes in its Facebook post below that they are "unaware of this man's real intentions and whether he was acting like this for the first time," indicating that they may fear Turcotte has used this type behaviour in the past, perhaps in order to meet or speak with young women.
The SPAL is hoping to speak with any individuals that may know more about Turcotte and if he has attempted this type of crime in the past.
