Two alert cops avert theft

Two alert constables, on night beat, attached to Malleswaram Police Station thwarted a theft attempt at a jewellery shop located on Margosa Road under Malleshwaram police limits in the early hours of Tuesday.

According to police, Ponnappa, head constable and Ramaswamy, police constable, were on night patrol.

While they were on Margosa road at around 2 am, they heard a noise near Raj Jewellery shop.
Near the entrance, they noticed a man running off to the rear side in the narrow gap between the jewellery shop and a neighbouring shop.

The constables tried chasing the miscreant but in vain, as he had jumped the rear wall and escaped.  They found two hacksaw blades, a hand glove, one cutting plier and a water bottle.
Ponnappa said they heard a noise and as they approached the shop, they noticed the man escaping.

The miscreants had pasted a white paper on the CCTV camera fixed outside the shop, so that their act is not recorded.

DCP (North) Sandip Patil said the two alert constables had averted a major theft. The owner of the shop was later informed about the theft. The police have sought the footage of the CCTV camera placed inside the jewellery shop .

A complaint is yet to be lodged by the shop owner. The two constables will be awarded, th­­e officer said.
