Policeman arrested for stealing a luxury watch

At the International Exhibition of Haute Horlogerie in Geneva, a member of the police force stole a watch of value.

As revealed on Friday lematin.ch and 20minutes.ch, a member of the local police was detained on remand Friday morning for stealing a Hermes watch, worth less than 10,000 francs. He committed this larceny during the International Exhibition of Fine Watchmaking, which took place from January 15 to 19 at Palexpo. The man took advantage of his police position to steal the precious object. Previous warrants occupied by the alleged thief, the gendarmerie, the judicial police and the international police, would not have gone well.

"Learning this kind of news is obviously very unpleasant," said Silvain Guillaume-Gentil, spokesman for the Geneva cantonal police. It must be said that this case is added to several cases made public in recent days. Tuesday, it was learned that the number 2 of the judicial police was arrested Friday, suspected of a serious violation of secrecy. Last week, three gendarmes were suspended for stealing cannabis stored at the station where they worked, after an alcoholic party.

Faced with this accumulation of doubtful business, impossible to build ties, according to Silvain Guillaume-Gentil. "We must see nothing but a sad combination of circumstances," he says. The 99% of the agents work in a completely honest way, and a desire for exemplarity exists internally for years. "And to recall the existence of the presumption of innocence, as for everyone:" c It's now up to the courts to do their job, "he concludes.
