It is the heart of the barbeque season, so what could be more distressing than having all of your hotdogs and hamburgers ready for the grill, only to find out that your propane tank has been stolen. That has been what is occurring in certain parts of Côte Saint-Luc District 2 in recent days.
Based on discussions with the victims, it appears that the perpetrators have struck as the skies drew dark. I have advised Police Station 9 and our Public Security to look out for any vehicles packing propane tanks in their trunk or the rear of a van.
In the meantime I recommend that barbeque owners buy a chain and a lock and make the propane tank impossible for these thieves to grab.
Where is this propane tank black market? I hope the police can find out.
