Monday evening, around 8 p.m. , the tactical intervention group of the Quebec City Police Service (SPVQ) arrested a man in the Neufchâtel sector for offenses of arson, mischief and extortion.

The 38-year-old suspect, Cydrik Dion-Tardif, appeared Tuesday for two cases at the Quebec courthouse.

The two files in question are events that were reported at the Le Central barbershop on Chemin Sainte-Foy on March 1, and the beauty care clinic Médivac on Maguire Avenue, March 23.

At the same time, the SPVQ also conducted a search of the suspect's home, in the Lebourgneuf sector, where the police arrested a 37-year-old woman for possession of narcotics. She was released on a promise to appear. The police also seized tools and clothing suspected of having been used in the misdeeds.

The director of criminal and penal prosecutions (DPCP) is opposed to the release of Cydrik Dion-Tardif. He will return to court on Thursday to set a hearing date for his release hearing.

The suspect was already known to the police, notably for an offense related to drug trafficking in 2015.

The two interventions were mandated by investigators from the MALSAIN project, the SPVQ program which was launched to counter an increase in violence linked to drug trafficking by organized crime. Since the beginning of March 2024, project investigators have also been handling cases related to misdeeds, threats, intimidation and extortion.

These misdeeds are part of the war for territorial control, according to the Police Department. The suspects demand sums of money from business managers and, in the event of non-payment, they threaten to burn down the business.
