Miscellaneous – Justice | Le Pontet: the robbers of the eight-year-old couple arrested in Gard

The three men, perpetrators of a car wreck last night at Pontet Cemetery, were arrested in Gard by gendarmes. Around 4pm yesterday, this armed trio violently held up a couple of eight-year-olds who had come to meditate at the grave of their relatives in the Pontet. The man and woman were attacked by three men who showed up with their faces covered in clothes and threatened them with a gun. Their car, a Peugeot 307, was subsequently stolen.

The three men left their terrorized victims and then marched on Gard, where they committed a series of armed robberies, particularly in Remoulins and Bezouce. The gendarmes of the Groupement du Gard deployed an important unit of about thirty men to stop the criminals as quickly as possible. It was when they reached the Super U from Marguerittes that the trio was arrested in the evening. The suspects are currently in custody. Their auditions have just begun.
