Man, 27, arrested in connection with December homicide

One month after the body of a man was found in a car in Lachine, Montreal police have arrested a man in connection with the homicide.

Dustin Lombardi, 27, appeared in court Friday on charges of first-degree murder and drug possession.

Police from Station 11 in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce arrested Lombardi Thursday night during a routine traffic stop.

They recognized Lombardi from a search warrant that had been issued for him after he escaped from custody.

Police are not releasing any further details about the investigation..

On December 23, 2014, a 24-year-old man — who was known to police — was found fatally shot in his car.
