Perp Walk for foiled robbers.
In Kadikoy, Istanbul, three suspects who tried to spirit out
clothes stolen from local stores by lining their bag with
aluminum foil to fool alarm systems were arrested.
Songul Y. (25) became suspicious of three customers last Saturday
morning as she noticed them putting clothes into their backpack
in her store on Bahariye Avenue in Kadikoy. Songul Y. alerted security
teams to the situation and they followed the three Georgian suspects as
they headed to another store. Again, stuffing clothes into the backpack,
the thieves hoped to pass undetected through the store alarms thanks
to the foil lining in their bag. They were caught red-handed.
The high-priced pants and skirts the robbers took were returned to
the stores. Zaza P., who was using the backpack, was arrested and
the other two suspects will be deported.
