Crime Branch ACP B V Gohil said, “The boys belong to middle class families and have been snatching mobiles for the past 8 months. They would snatch cellphones and sell it locally. The trio shared the money from the spoils. More details are awaited following their questioning.”
The cases have been registered at Sola High Court, Sarkhej and Vastrapur police stations. They have been found involved in cases near Thaltej and Sola areas where they have snatched seven mobile phones from different victims.
They would sometime go on triple ride or sometime two would go on a bike and snatch phones from unsuspecting victims. The cops are identifying what other crimes they would have committed or if they were involved in any other cases. Gohil added that the accused idled away their time and did not do anything for a living. The money they got from selling the phones they would spend on having fun and a lavish lifestyle. Their family was unaware of their crimes.
