Officers patrolling the area noticed suspicious individuals very close to Accurso’s home on 15th Ave., the reports said.
While officers were identifying the individuals, they noticed incendiary material in the car they were in, Inspector Jean-Philippe Labbé, spokesman for the Lac des Deux-Montagnes Police Department, told the Journal de Montréal.
In early July, a vehicle belonging to Accurso’s son, Giovanni, was set on fire outside his residence.
Accurso filed a request to have the Supreme Court of Canada hear an appeal of his 2018 conviction for taking part in a conspiracy with more than 60 others to commit acts of corruption in municipal affairs and breach of trust in Laval.
