    Photo: Police arrest two for car theft in Anambra State

    The Anambra State Police Command on Tuesday, December 20th, arrested  two suspects in connection with car snatching and dealing business.
    The suspects identified as were one Chukwuebuka Nwachukwu, 25 from Amaodo Awkunanaw in Nkanu West Council Area of Enugu State who allegedly snatched the car and 26-year-old Ndife Madukafrom Umuobi, Awkuzu in Oyi Council Area alleged to be the prospective buyer of the stolen vehicle.
    The car,  an Ash Coloured Lexus Jeep RX300 with registration number- Enu-824-JW, was said to have been snatched at gunpoint in Enugu late Sunday evening but the snatcher was intercepted early yesterday by Men of the State's 29 Police Mobile Force on stop and search operations around MOPOL 29 base junction by Old Road Agu Awka.
    Addressing newsmen while parading the suspects, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Nkiru Nwode explained that when accosted, the snatcher had claimed to be the owner of the vehicle but after thorough searching, some documents and an empty cartridge shell were found in the vehicle.
    The PPRO who described stop and search as a viable option in crime fighting, said that what the Command is working on is to ensure that Men of the Force do not abuse the process by extorting the public.
    She appealed to the public to always be vigilant to identify and report suspicious activities in their localities as well as to be willing to volunteer useful information that will help the Security operatives do their job well, assuring them that the Command is committed to ensuring that the state remains the safest in the country especially during the yuletide celebrations.
    The husband to the victim, Mr Charles Nwabueze from Amaechi Uwani in Enugu State expressed shock and disbelief that one of the suspects who snatched the car lives along the same street with his family in Enugu, commending the State Police for its vigilance and dedication to duty.
    The suspected car snatcher, Mr Nwachukwu who denied knowing that the car was stolen, said he was just told by one Mr Abada in Enugu to deliver the vehicle to the receiver and collect the sum of forty thousand naira.
    On his part, the receiver, Mr Ndife claimed to have paid the sum of four hundred thousand naira to a car dealer in Enugu for a fairly used car but the man has refused to bring him the vehicle until yesterday when he called him to come with the remaining balance of seven hundred thousand naira to pick his car. According to him, on getting to Unizik junction for the transaction, he was apprehended by the police.
