Authorities in Canada have arrested four individuals in connection with the robbery of 2010 WSOP Main Event Winner Jonathan Duhamel.
First to be picked up was the 20 year-old Bianca Rojas-Latraverse, a woman hailing from Saint-Saveur. Her arrest has been credited to information obtained from the public, according to the police, who have charged her with five offenses. Next to be hauled in was John Stephan Clark Lemay and Andre Robert Perron, ages 22 and 26, respectively. These two were charged with breaking and entering, robbery, assault, and forcible confinement, according to PokerNews. Now, Canada’s CBC News is reporting that a fourth man (also 20 years old) has been picked up in relation to these events. No charges have yet been filed, though he remains under scrutiny.
Rojas-Latraverse, the Duhamel camp acknowledges, was briefly involved with the Main Event winner. The two dated for a short period of time, and is the only one of the four suspects personally known to Duhamel.
According to previously published reports, two men forced their way into Duhamel’s house last week. They bound and beat the 2010 champ before making off with a black Rolex Submariner watch, an unspecified amount of 500-euro bills and, worst of all, his diamond-encrusted WSOP bracelet. The watch was recovered on the person of Perron.
The bracelet, however, has yet to be found. Duhamel, fresh off a brief stay in the hospital, is offering a reward of $10,000 to anyone who could assist in the recovery of the item.
