A security guard, who escaped with a luxury car from an apartment to settle a loan of Rs 80,000, has been arrested by the Anna Nagar police.
The police interrogated the driver and based on his suggestion that the security guard, V Vijayram (56) of Cuddalore, working in the adjacent apartment helps him clean the car often, the latter was picked up. Interrogation revealed that the driver dropped the keys by mistake, which Vijayram picked up, and he stole the car on May 31. “He had safely parked the car in a shed near Maduravoyal. During interrogation, Vijayram told the police that he had borrowed Rs 80,000 from a friend and was planning to use the car to repay the loan after finding the key. To avoid suspicion, he came to duty as usual,” said the police. He was remanded on Tuesday.
