MONTREAL – Published reports Monday suggest that the provincial anti-corruption cops left bugs behind after raiding Laval city hall in October.

The Journal de Montréal is reporting that after the raid by officers with the Unité permanente anti-corruption (UPAC) last autumn, surveillance microphones were installed after all employees were ordered out of the building.

Anne-Frédérick Laurence, spokesperson for UPAC, would neither confirm nor deny the report, as per usual, and offered ‘no comment.”

Laval police spokesperson Nathalie Lorrain heard about the report on the morning news and said she had nothing further to add.
