Police operation in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu: the accused released under conditions
Simon-Olivier Frappier was arrested during a police operation that forced the confinement of hundreds of people.
Simon-Olivier Frappier, the 19-year-old man arrested during a police intervention at Cégep de Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu last week, has been released awaiting trial, but he will have to meet a series of conditions.
He is accused of uttering threats.
Mr. Frappier will have to pay a deposit of $500, in addition to committing not to return to the cégep or to approach it within 200 meters. He must also refrain from wearing military equipment. He is also prohibited from possessing weapons and changing his address.
It is unclear whether there are more direct links between the accused and the plaintiff in this case.
Mr. Frappier, who was appearing by videoconference, agreed to these release conditions and is due back in court on January 16. suspicious behavior, including wearing what looked like a bulletproof vest, Simon-Olivier Frapper sparked a massive police operation last Friday in which hundreds of students and staff remained confined for several hours inside the cégep.
Mr. Frappier was arrested mid-morning, without further incident.
