It was initially a simple control of an individual on the handlebars of a electric bike at Ramonville-Saint-Agne. Investigation and DNA analyzes finally brought the suspect before a judge to acts of burglary, theft and concealment operated in the sector of southeast of Toulouse. This is what happened.
The case begins on Wednesday, January 11, 2023 at Ramonville-Saint-Agne. The gendarmes of the Surveillance and Intervention Platoon of the Gendarmerie (PSIG) ofEscalquens spot a suspicious person riding an electric bicycle. “Seeing the gendarmes, he had a fleeing behavior”, we explain on the side of the gendarmerie company of Villefranche-de-Lauragais.
The individual try to escapesays the gendarmerie of Haute-Garonne on his Facebook pagebut it’s useless. He quickly catches up.
The bike is stolen
After investigation, the gendarmes discover that the electric bike is stolen. The suspect is taken into custody.
Lack of papers, the soldiers struggle to discover the identity of that foreign national and must conduct the investigation. “Despite his many lies, the investigators of the community of brigades of Castanet Tolosan manage to establish his civil status”, indicates the gendarmerie of Haute-Garonne.
The case does not stop there and quickly goes beyond the framework of the stolen electric bicycle. Through DNA analysisthe military managed to establish a link between the arrested and five cases of burglary, theft and concealment in the Ramonville-Saint-Agne sector. The oldest file dating back to August 2022.
A search is then carried out at the place where the individual has taken up residence, an abandoned house designated as a squat in Ramonville-Saint-Agne. Thirty stolen items are found there. However, the suspect is not the only one living within these walls.
A prison sentence
The defendant was transferred and taken into custody. He appeared in court on Monday January 16 and was sentenced to 6 months in prison, accompanied by an ban on French territory (ITF). He has ten days to appeal this decision, if he wishes.
