theft

KOVALAM: The mastermind of the series of thefts in Thiruvallam and Pachalloor has been arrested. The arrested has been identified as Komban Shibu, a native of Venjaramoodu. Two co-accused, who are natives of Tamil Nadu, are absconding. Indications are that they will be arrested soon.

Recently, there were complaints about thefts in uninhabitant houses in Thiruvallam's Pachalloor area. There was another complaint lodged on Sunday at Thiruvallam station. The latest complaint was regarding a burglary attempt at the house of retired KSEB officer Soman, of Karuna Bhavan near Pachalloor's Thopadi Junction. The thief entered the house by breaking open the main door made of teak wood.

At the time, there was no one at home. The cupboards in every room of the two-storey house were smashed. The family members say that nothing was taken away as they did not keep money and gold at home. The clothes and other things in the cupboard were scattered. The family had been with their son, who lives near Technopark, for a week. Yesterday evening, when the residents came home, they came to know about the burglary attempt.

On the same day, the group led by Komban Shibu likely entered the house of Haneefa and Shamla on the Pachalloor Bypass Road near the Kollamthara Toll Plaza.

The theft took place when the family went to another house in Vallakadavu. The thieves entered by breaking the lock of the front door, broke the wall closets and stole CCTV cameras and related equipment.
