Three youth were arrested on Monday in connection with a series of robbery and theft cases in and around Viruthampet Police station limits. The police lodged them in the Borstal School at Thorapadi.

Suresh (20) of Bommasamuthiram in Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh and his two associates, Arun Raj (20) of Kangeyanallur and Karthick (19) of Virthumpet in Vellore, were picked up from the Chittoor Bus Stand for traffic offences during a vehicle check on Sunday night. Realising that the trio had already been involved in theft and robbery cases, the police frisked them and found silverware in their possession.

On enquiry, the trio revealed that they were on their way to sell the stolen articles. They also confessed to their involvement in two chain snatching cases, a temple theft and stealing of an inverter and silver ornaments from a magistrate’s house.

Police recovered two kilograms of silverware, the inverter and five sovereign jewels from them and booked them under Sections 478, 457 and 380 of IPC.
