SQ officer previously charged with fraud arrested again
New charges against Nicolas Landry include assault with a weapon, confinement
A Sûreté du Québec police officer who has previously found himself in legal trouble has been arrested once again.
Nicolas Landry, 40, was arrested Thursday and appeared in court in Saint-Hyacinthe Friday.
Landry was charged with assault with a weapon, confinement, mischief, harassment and robbery.
He was released with conditions, including not being able to contact any of the alleged victims.
His next court date is set for Aug. 8.
Prior run-ins with the law
Last August, Landry was charged with fraud over $5,000 after he allegedly submitted false information to his employer in order to extend a sick leave.
The SQ said it began investigating Landry in July, 2014.
In December, he was charged with impersonating a peace officer and obstructing a peace officer.
It's unclear when his next court dates in connection with those incidents will take place.
Landry has been a member of the SQ for nearly 15 years. He's been off on sick leave since 2009.
