KUWAIT: This photo released by the Interior Ministry shows vehicles targeted in robberies committed by serial thieves who were arrested yesterday

Car thieves caught
Criminal detectives arrested a citizen and a Gulf national who were described in a statement released by the Interior Ministry yesterday as ‘auto theft experts.’ Detectives noticed that many theft reports were filed by people who complained that thieves broke into their vehicles and stole belongings they had left inside. The thieves reported targeted vehicles parked in school parking lots, and all of them had their side windows smashed. Detectives monitored various spots for 10 days, until the suspects were seen. The first suspect headed to a car, while the other kept watch. Police then moved in, but the suspects violently resisted arrest, injuring a policeman in the process. The two had tools for the thefts, and they confessed to committing 18 thefts, adding that they used the second suspect’s house to store the stolen items. Both were sent to concerned authorities.
