A security guard attached to a house at Wuse, Abuja, has been arrested by men of the FCT police command for allegedly conniving with a man (now at large) to steal two cars belonging to his master.
The vehicles allegedly stolen are Toyota Corolla with registration number RSH60AH and a Toyota Sienna car with registration number RBC300AL.
Deputy Superintendent Hyelhira Altine Daniel, the FCT Police spokesperson said the suspect and his accomplice planned to steal the cars when his master travels.
She said immediately the suspect’s master travelled, the suspects stole the two cars and one then called one of their friend at Minna, Niger state, to assist them in selling one of the stolen cars.
The police spokesperson said while this was going on, the owner of the house came and discovered that his cars were missing and reported to the police.
“Our men swooped into action, one of the cars was traced to Niger state and the security guard was arrested. The other one was dumped at Masaka,” she stated.
She added that both cars have since been recovered and investigation is still ongoing.
