BENGALURU: South East police have arrested 47-year-old Idayath, who had stolen 61 two-wheelers across the city.

Police have recovered booty worth `21 lakh. 

A police officer said Idayath, a resident of Yarabnagar in Banashankari, was particular about Honda Activa and TVS Scooty as there was more demand for them. He used to lift the vehicles parked in front of houses and commercial complexes using duplicate keys. Over the last two years, he has stolen 61 vehicles in Hulimavu, Basavanagudi, JP Nagar, Kumaraswamy Layout, Banashankari, Kalasipalya, and Bannerghatta.
