Mylapore zone DCP, V. Balakrishnan says that his police teams in the Mylapore-Triplicane-Royapettah zone worked endlessly and managed to arrest a notorious criminal who indulged in chain-snatching.
This past week, a number of such crimes were reported and three were from Mylapore colonies in which the women lost their gold-chains to bike-borne thieves.
The DCP said that his team worked long hours and even pieced together leads they got from CCTV cams in one area in their efforts to nab the criminals.
The DCP says the arrested man claimed movies gave him ideas on how to commit the crimes. He says this is a worrying issue.
