Three chain-snatching crimes were reported from the Mylapore region last weekend.
A woman standing outside her house in Kuyil Thottam, off San Thome High Road lost her gold chain to a bike-borne duo of thieves on Sunday.
The same Sunday morning, a bike-boirne duo snatched the chain of a woman in Nochikuppam, on the seaside.
One bike-borne thief snatched the chain of a woman on Sri Karaneeswarar Koil Street in Mylapore.
Police have registered cases in all three instances. Though police say these are isolated cases, they clearly indicate the temerity with which young men are resorting to crimes to probably gain quick money.
