The West Division police arrested three people, including a pawnbroker allegedly involved in a house theft, and solved 41 cases reported across the city and Ramanagaram over the last few months. Police also recovered valuables worth `40 lakh from the arrested.

The accused are Rajaram (38), a resident of Rajagopal Nagar, Hemaraj alias Kaage (27) of Laggere and Nagesh (30) of Sunkadakatte. Other accused, Kantharaju alias Kantha, Ambarish alias Ramesh, and Kemparaju are still at large.

The police said Rajaram, who hails from Rajasthan, came to the city eight years ago and was working in a pawnbroker shop belonging to his older brother. Later, he opened his own pawnbroker shop at Rajagopal Nagar and befriended Hemaraj, Nagesh and the others. Rajaram was also running Bharath Security Force, a security agency, and had appointed some people to look after the operations of the agency. Once he learnt that Hemaraj and his friends were involved in theft cases, he joined them by giving his car to the gang and also accompanied them to houses. They planned well before committing thefts.

Rajaram Posed As a Police Officer

Rajaram used to don a police uniform and go around on a motorcycle posing as a police officer.

He introduced himself to others as a police officer and had even morphed some pictures showing him with two police commissioners. He had even displayed one such morphed photo at his security agency office.
