Bengaluru: The Basavanagudi police nabbed an inter-state burglar who used to burgle cash and valuables from locked houses after gaining entry into them, ostensibly as salesman.
Syed Ahmed (32), a resident of Tumakuru was nabbed in connection with the multiple burglaries in the city.
Syed Ahmed used to ring the door bell at the entrance of houses and only after confirming the absence of all inmates, he used to break open the door using steel rods.
After escaping with valuables, he used to befriend women and after paying them little amount, he used to sell the stolen jewellery in gold outlets to get cash in return. He used to hire fancy cars to land at gold outlets so that gold vendors do not doubt on his identity.
With his arrest, police solved 6 cases including 2 in Basavanagudi police station limits and the one each in Jayanagar,J P Nagar, Byatarayanapura and Kengeri police station limits.
Bengaluru Southern Range DCP Dr. Sharanappa had formed three teams to apprehend the notorious burglar.
