The police in Enugu have arrested three suspects for car theft. The suspects were said to have fled to Abia State, where they were captured after stealing the vehicle.
Ebere Amaraizu, Enugu police spokesperson, said this in a statement on Saturday.
He said the police operatives of the New Haven Division captured the suspects after an intelligence report.
“It was gathered that suspects allegedly, on Nov. 1, 2017, snatched and stole a Toyota Sienna car with registration Number LND 388 AS at gun point from the owner at Nnaji Park axis of New Haven in Enugu.
“The suspects escaped to an unknown destination but never knew that police operatives had been on their trail,’’ he said.
Amaraizu said that the vehicle had been recovered from the suspects. He added that investigation had commenced into the crime.
