“There was the start of a wave of burglaries in the La Roque-Gageac sector, which created a certain stir in the town. » Joffrey Conte, the commander of the Sarlat gendarmerie company, justifies the system put in place on Friday May 3 and Saturday May 4, in Périgord Noir.

On Friday, soldiers from the Belvès brigade were in Cénac-et-Saint-Julien to carry out targeted road checks. “There are three possible axes,” explains the commander. The first is Brive; the second, Périgueux, and the third, local. » Requested by Jérôme Peyrat, the mayor of La Roque-Gageac, the soldier held a public meeting, both to reassure the population, but also “to remind people of basic safety rules, such as remembering to close your door. That said, if I understand the residents, we have to put things into perspective, it’s not every day either. », he asks.

To remain vigilant

You should know that there is not just one type of burglary. “There is the burglary of opportunity, the one that is targeted, and finally, the wild search,” presents the commander. The profiles also diverge. “Teams can be set up for a specific objective,” says the gendarme. This was the case in Montignac-Lascaux, for chainsaws. But you can also find a drug addict who does it to pay for his goods.

“The point of this type of action is to show these gangs that we are there,” says Nadine Monteil, the sub-prefect of Sarlat, present at Cénac on Friday. We analyze events in real time. » For these two days, around forty gendarmes were mobilized at different points in the territory. But not randomly.
