A lone robber has looted Mobile Phones worth Rs. 4.5 million during a 35-hour-long robbery in Saddar’s Aman Tower, Karachi.
The burglar entered the mall late on Saturday night and left at around 10:30 pm on Monday, said the police. During his 35-hour heist, he took 111 high-end Smartphones from a mobile shop worth Rs. 4.5 million.
According to police, the suspect couldn’t immediately be identified because he blackened the CCTV cameras of the mall when he entered. In the CCTV video, a masked man can be seen using spray paint on the surveillance cameras.
A case has been registered in Preedy Police Station while the police have acquired the CCTV footage from the mall’s cameras besides other evidence.
Speaking to media, SP Saddar Amjad Hayat and SHO Preedy Police Station Liaquat Hussain said that the suspect seemed to be a habitual offender. He came prepared with roasted chickpeas to sustain during the hours-long robbery.
The police officers were shocked to learn that during all that time, the security guards on all four entrances of the mall were present but remained oblivious to the thief’s activities.
