Halloween decorations were stolen from a front lawn display in Île-Bizard over the weekend.
Home security footage appears to show two men driving away in a white pickup truck with several decorations at around 2 a.m. Saturday morning.
“I woke one morning and realized they were gone,” homeowner François Fortin said.

Fortin says the men looked like professionals taking three display items from his property.
“They unplugged them and knew exactly what they were doing,” Fortin said.
Two customized illuminated skulls and a tombstone were taken from the decorated front lawn on des Grives street.
Fortin said the items that were taken were not expensive.
He says he has had them for many years and will most likely not be able to replace them.
“It’s not the money, it’s the fact that they could do this,” Fortin said.

Fortin believes his house was targeted.
Watching his security footage, Fortin says the same white truck was seen on Wednesday surveying the area.

Fortin says he will be filing an official police report about the theft and will hand over all of the footage for the investigation.
“I want them to be caught for what they did,” Fortin said.
According to a Montreal police spokesperson, there have been no other reported thefts of Halloween decorations in the area.
