The Longueil Police have recovered half of the money stolen from Jonathan Duhamel during the December 21st home invasion that took place at his Boucherville residence. The police received an anonymous tip that lead them to an envelope containing about $80,000 in cash in a mailbox in Longueuil on January 6 according to a statement yesterday. The currency and denominations matched the description of the stolen cash.
Duhamel opened the door of his condo on the morning of Dec. 21 and was tied up and beaten by two men. The thieves made off with about $160,000 in cash, a Rolex watch, and the Championship bracelet Duhamel won in the World Series of Poker in 2010.
Ex-girlfriend Bianca Rojas-Latraverse was arrested shortly after for her involvement in the robbery, and was denied bail by a judge in the case last month. She and her accomplices were arrested and charged with conspiracy, assault, kidnapping and breaking and entering. Anthony Bourque, John Clark, and André-Robert Perron are now awaiting trial this month on February 21. They are accused of having taken advantage of Rojas-Latraverse’s intimate knowledge of Duhamel and his home to plan the crime.
The other stolen items have not yet been recovered.
