The grocery store is located at the corner of Laurentien Boulevard and Louisbourg Street.

The owner of the grocery store says the stolen property was a Bitcoin machine.

“They ripped the machine and broke all our windows,” Antonio Saltarelli, grocery store owner, said.

“I guess people today will do anything for stealing.”

The store was closed at the time and Saltarelli says the store’s cleaning staff comes in at midnight.

Saltarelli estimates damage to the store of about $10,000.

According to Montreal police spokesperson Daniel Lacoursière, the suspect or suspects broke into the grocery store through a window. The ATM was taken and placed into a car.
