From Saturday to Sunday, at 11:30 pm, a group of four young men rioted on the open tennis courts in tennis montcolm on the Boulevard Champaign.

“What we see on surveillance cameras is young people jumping on the fence, stepping on the field, playing tennis with fancy racquets,” said Eric P., the club’s general manager.

The criminals allegedly damaged the surface of the field with machines at the scene, smashed beer bottles and left pizza boxes there. A fifth person is said to have joined the group later, which disappears from the cameras at around 1am.

Heavy water loss

During their escape, the fraudsters cut a pipe and caused a major water loss at the Tennis Pro Sport Store next to the tennis club. “The water flowed all night until the crew appeared at the start of Sunday night,” Mr Lowesque summed up.

The store owner, Jean-Michel Gaimond, appeared to be frustrated with the size of the damage yesterday, which he said was between $ 25,000 and $ 30,000 due to water-damaged items.
