The Avignon police came to the aid of a trader shortly after 11 a.m. on Thursday, December 30. The latter, accompanied by a friend, went to meet one of the thieves who had raged a few days earlier in his grocery store.
Possessing the address of the person concerned who lives in the city of papers, the merchant goes there to retrieve an item belonging to him, namely a cash register. The 18-year-old suspected of the theft does not give in and opens the door, a knife in his hand. Solicited, the police arrive just in this street located not far from the university and, after discussion with the boss of the trade, embarks the young man. During the search then directed at the suspect, the agents discovered the broken cash register but also several bottles of alcohol and 1,300 euros in cash.
Placed in custody, the young adult first minimized the facts by affirming that the goal was intended for another person and ended up confessing his participation in the theft in the company of an accomplice, without giving his identity. Unknown to the police, the defendant is summoned next May to the Avignon court as part of a COPJ.
