A 59-year-old man, a former Amazon deliveryman, was arrested this Tuesday in Rezé (Loire-Atlantique), suspected of having committed 52 burglaries without a break-in, according to our colleagues from Presse Océan, citing the public prosecutor.

Two other people suspected of receiving stolen goods were also arrested, including the partner of the fifty-year-old.

According to the Nantes prosecutor, Renaud Gaudeul, cited by the local media, an upsurge in this practice of latch theft has been noted since the summer of 2023 in the Nantes metropolitan area.

The man, who knew the streets perfectly from his former job as a deliveryman for Amazon, had a well-established modus operandi: he entered homes in socks so as not to alert his victims, and stole objects near the entrance. .

Resale of computer equipment

Multimedia equipment, musical instruments and even fine wines were notably stolen.

After the first misdeeds in Saint-Herblain, the man extended his nocturnal outings to the communes of Sainte-Luce and Thouaré-sur-Loire.

The police and the gendarmerie jointly carried out the investigation, after deducing that suspicions converged on the same individual whose vehicle they had identified.

Through surveillance and shadowing operations, the noose tightens around the fifty-year-old.

Two other suspects are then identified: the criminal's partner, aged 69, was filmed purchasing pastries using a stolen bank card using contactless payment;

the second accomplice, a man living in Nantes and aged 46, is suspected of having resold the multimedia equipment.
