Gang violence on
south shore
Surprise clean up in customs agencies
The Gazette
January 17 2003
In an unprecedented wave of
internal investigations, a large
number of employees were let
go from Dorval’s custom
offices. A total of 12 people
were fired from various positions for having accepted
bribes in the recent months.

Two young men were found
dead last night in a car parked
in a small grocery store in
Longueuil. The two victims,
both shot coldly in the head,
are thought to be members of
the banditots, the notorious
gang responsible for a rash of
crimes on the south shore the
last few months.
Police are investigating but
have few leads at the moment.
Gang rivalry is presumed to be
the cause for the moment.
Gang unit Capt. Joseph
Uptown said drive-by shootings
are up about 30 percent and
stabbings rose 20 percent
between this year and last,
although raw numbers for
those particular crimes were
not available Tuesday afternoon.
"There's a lot of belief out there
that gang violence is on a
decrease, but the people who
live in the neighborhoods know
what's going on," stated a local
officer. "There is definitely an
Higher ups in the federal
agency are outraged at the

employees who were corrupt.
National security was soon
brought up though no links to
terrorist activity has been
made as of yet. Early reports
mention an anonymous local
source for the bribes, making
the theory of the culprit being a
local business more credible.
Officials have already released
a statement, reassuring the
public that all breaches have
been removed and intensive
investigations are underway.

His body was found in the bedroom, tied hand and foot. He had

into the bizarre murder but investigations are underway.
Jean-Pierre Renaud, wealthy art
