The first facts date back to April 4.
During the day on Monday, a young man entered a restaurant located rue Henri-IV in the 2nd arrondissement of Lyon to steal a duplicate key.
In the evening, once the establishment closed, he returned to steal the entire contents of the cash register. He also took care to disconnect the CCTV system.
At the end of April, the same individual committed another burglary, this time breaking into a medical office in Ecully. After two months of investigation, the police made the connection and managed to formally identify the suspect.
The 19-year-old man was arrested on Thursday. Placed in police custody and questioned, the thief admitted all the facts and even confessed to another burglary committed in a doctor’s office in Villeurbanne.
He will be presented to the prosecution this Friday as part of an immediate appearance.
