Maurice St. Pierre, director of Quebec Provincial Police, de- clined today to confirm: or deny published and broadcast reports that some rooms of the building were so occupied. He simply made his "possible" comment. The reports say members of the combined anti-terrorist squad occupied upper rooms in :he duplex building while Mr. Cross was held on the ground loor. But police were cautious recause of fears for the British envoy's life. "We were never actually posi- tive that Mr. Cross was in the louse, but neither were we posi- ive that he was not said Mr. St. Pierre, who was placed in charge of all Quebec's policemen in the kidnap emcr- it gency. COULDN'T TAKE CHANCE "The problem was that there could have been a shoot-out or maybe a bomb explosion be- cause we know there was a lot of dynamite inside and we sim- ply could not lake a chance. As our leads became stronger and clearer, we tightened the police net around the house and finally showed them (the kid- nappers) that we were waiting for them. "We let them know, by our movements, that we were wait- ing for them to make their move. We were in no hurry to ;et anyone harmed." The police director said in an interview that as leads con- verged on the des Becollets YOUR PHILIPS DEALER WITH SERVICE RADIO and TV JAllV 5 302 13th St. N.

Mr. St. Pierre stressed, how ever, that even wiUi the corn munique police could not be positive that Mr. Cross was in side the house. Lawyer Bernard Mergler was the first person to go into the house once negotiations begai for the release of Mr. Cross ant the safe passage to Cuba of the kidnappers, the chiel said. "We were only positive that .10 (Cross) was in the house when we finally saw him at Man and His World, but at no joint could we afford to chance anything. Our information >roved valid when we discov- ered a large number of sticks of dynamite in the house later." POLICE CALLED Though he would neither con- 'irm nor deny ths presence of lice occupants in the building, ;ho director said he was aware ;hat suburban Montreal North lolice had been called there to investigate ''noise of a possible burglary." The suburban police left when they found everything in order, said Mr. St. Pierre. The Star says it learned from Montreal North police, however, they were aware other police- men were occupying 1KM9 des Recollets directly above where Mr. Cross was held. "We knew that the place was being watched when we went to investigate the noises the pre- vious one source said. The officers holed up there showed identification, explained the situation and sent their sub- urban counterparts on their way with a request to keep silent on the matter, the Montreal North sources reported. OWNER COMMENTS Meanwhile, Tomasso (Tom) Sasso, owner of the now-famed duplex, told a reporter at his home in neighboring St. Michel Thursday night that he and his brother run a milk delivery ser- ivice in the city's north end and le owns only one one where Mr. Cross was found. He was not aware of any police occupants and had thought the w o second-floor apartments were occupied by other tenants. "I rented the first floor apart- ment to a man who called him- self Jacques said Mr. Sasso. "He signed a lease that would run until next May. "No, I don't recall that he re- sembled anyone in the pictures I saw in the papers He al- ways came here with the rent on time and that's all I eared about." There never was any trouble and "the people upstairs never complained about anything."
