Police investigation into Stationnement de Montréal closed

An investigation by the municipal anti-corruption task force into the activities of the city's parking authority is now closed, and that its investigation didn't uncover any wrongdoing.

In November, the ÉPIM squad raided the Old Montreal offices of Stationnement de Montréal, amid reports of widespread theft among employees of the city's parking authority.

There were no arrests made during the raids.

Two weeks before the police operation, there had been reports that as much as $238,000 in change was stolen from parking meters across the city, by as many as four employees with the parking authority — though it was never revealed whether the raids had anything to do with the thefts.

The parking authority, which raked in $61.7 million in parking meter revenues in 2012, will be places under the full control of the city by the end of the year.
