Gatineau police have recovered a number of items that are believed to have been looted from homes hit by the tornadoes that touched down on September 21.


Police began the investigation after a resident lodged a complaint Oct. 13, claiming they had been the victim of a break-in at 35 Tassé St. In the following days, the complainant called back and reported that they had found many of the items that were allegedly stolen on an web-based classified site.


Police raided a residence on Lucien-Brault Street where they found some of the items from the original complainant, as well as a variety of items that they believe were stolen from the Mont Bleu area affected by the tornado.


Three people were taken into custody but two were released without charges.


The third individual was released with a promise to appear in court and will face charges.


Police also seized several items and are warning people who may have had items stolen during the tornado, that they may be contacted by police in the coming days to identify property that was reported stolen.


An investigation into the incident is still ongoing.


Police ask anyone with information to contact them at 819-246-0222.
