Po­lice nab sus­pected car thief

Daily Trust - - JOBS & CAREERS - By Taiwo Adeniyi

The po­lice in Gwar­inpa di­vi­sion have ar­rested a sus­pected car thief after an al­leged failed at­tempt to steal a car on Fifth Av­enue near Citec Junc­tion.

A po­lice source said the sus­pect and his ac­com­plice, who were drunk, had leant on the car while at­tempt­ing to open the door be­fore they were caught by some res­i­dents.

“One Jojo was seen while at­tempt­ing to steal one Honda Ac­cord ve­hi­cle with reg­is­tra­tion num­ber FU 225 EKY from where it was parked,” the source said.

The source said res­i­dents con­tacted po­lice of­fi­cers after the sus­pect was caught in the act.

The Gwar­inpa Divi­sional Po­lice Of­fi­cer, CSP Nu­rud­deen Sabo, said the sus­pect had not opened the ve­hi­cle be­fore he was caught.

“He had not suc­ceeded in open­ing the car; he rested on the car with the in­ten­tion of open­ing it,” he said.

He com­mended the res­i­dents for their dis­ci­pline as the sus­pect was not man­han­dled be­fore he was handed over to the po­lice.

“There was noth­ing found on him but res­i­dents al­leged that there were two so the other sus­pect must have es­caped with the tools,” he said.
