Three Burglars

VISAKHAPATNAM: In another major catch, the city police Saturday night nabbed three offenders involved in nine house-breaking incidents and a motorcycle theft case in the city in the last two months. The police arrested M Chinna Naidu, a native of Rajahmundry, K Chandrasekhar and N Srinu, both residents of Visakhapatnam and recovered 80 grams of gold, 2.7 kg of silver and a motorcycle, all worth around `3 lakh.

According to DCP (law and order zone-II) G Ram Gopal Naik, Naidu, Chandrasekhar and Srinu are auto drivers in daytime and at night, committed house break-ins in the absence of inmates. Explaining their modus operandi, police said that for their burglaries, the gang stole a bike at Chodavaram.

One of them would go round the streets in the city during daytime and identify locked houses and find out whether the inmates were out of station. After confirming the details, the trio would land at the house the same night. While one stayed outside as watch, the other two broke into the houses.

Police said that the trio had committed nine burglaries - four at Pendurthy, three in MVP zone and one each in Gajuwaka and Kancharapalem. After receiving several complaints, the police constituted special teams led by ACP (North) T Bhima Rao to crack the case.

On a tip-off, Saturday night, the police teams nabbed the accused at a dhaba near Vepagunta Junction, where the trio used to gather and have dinner before embarking on their nocturnal adventures.

Meanwhile, the DCP said that after the loot, the trio used to mortgage the gold with private finance banks and get money, from where they recovered the loot.

All three accused have several cases and suspect sheets against them in various parts of the region.
