Community apprehends alleged thief
An Indian male who claims to have been an accomplice in an aluminium window stealing racket, was apprehended by community members and CPF members after he fled from Westmont to Lotus Park and ran into a
house on Bauhenia Crescent.
Alpha Alarms Response members were alerted to the crime in progress and responded to the scene where the suspect had locked himself inside the house earlier today.
The suspect was restrained by Alpha members until police arrived on scene.
According to the suspect, his friend was behind the theft of the windows and he alleged that he only helped carry the items. It is alleged that the suspect was pursued from the Westmont premises after he was
caught stealing aluminum windows.
The complainant in the incident is said to be on his way to open a case. The suspect is a resident of Orient park and was handed over to his family by police to be picked up if the complainant proceeds with a case.
The suspect was found with a bag of tools which he says is used for cleaning scrap.
