Three old-fashioned thieves, aged 42 to 54, were presented this Thursday before the Criminal Court of Paris, which decided to refer this case to July 25 before the 16th room. Tony M. and Aissa O. were jailed and the last put under court control. The three men are suspected of having committed a series of five robberies between the months of April and last May in Paris and Montrouge (Hauts-de-Seine) for damages of around 400,000 euros in watches, jewelery and leather goods.
After meticulous explorations of opulent buildings and multiple checks, criminals attacked the locks. Equipped with his “umbrella”, a kind of hook, Tony M. was quick to force them, but always delicately. “There was never any trace of theft in the lock,” says a source close to the case. Once inside the quarters, they searched the compound quickly but without disturbing anything. They grabbed the jewelry before leaving. »
Already convicted of 40 robberies in the nice neighborhoods
The three men were arrested on Tuesday in Paris, the eldest and… in a preventive detention center the other two, already in preventive detention for identical acts.
Left in the court box, gray hair and square face, Tony M. knows music. This 42-year-old man, originally from the commuter community of Montreuil (Seine-Saint-Denis), is one of the few thugs in the Paris region capable of opening doors with an umbrella. This tool used by locksmiths allows doors to be opened without problems without leaving any trace of manipulation.
His record has seven entries for theft, refusal to comply and driving under the influence of alcohol. His last conviction dates back to 2019, when he was found guilty of forty burglaries in the beautiful neighborhoods of the capital. He maintains that he is a maintenance worker and that he suffers from psychiatric problems. During the custody of him, he did not release her.
Beside him, glasses and gray hair, Aissa O. has been convicted four times of robbery, kidnapping and forced imprisonment. This father, unemployed and depressed, asks for better follow-up in prison.
The third is 54 years old, bald and mustachioed, his record is heavy with fourteen convictions. He works as a waiter in a brewery but also suffers from serious psychological problems that allow him to receive a disabled adult allowance. “He wasn’t a good boy, but I don’t have blood on my hands,” he breathes. The 50-year-old man contests the facts attributed to him.
