Kabilan, a resident of Anna Nedum Padhai in Choolaimedu, had lodged a complaint a month ago that his bike was stolen. Based on the complaint, police had registered a case.
Meanwhile, Kabilan received a message on his phone that he has been booked for traffic violation involving his stolen bike. After he alerted the Choolaimedu police about the message, inquiries revealed that the offence took place in Tirunelveli.
A team of police personnel led by crime inspector Prascitha Deepa rushed to Tirunelveli and secured the person in possession of the two-wheeler. He was identified as M Kombaiah (27) of Kalakkadu in Tirunelveli.
Police grilled him only to unearth the involvement of a larger vehicle stealing gang. “The main accused Arunachalam, a resident of Chennai, stole the vehicles and gave them to Kombaiah to sell them with fake documents. His friends have also been involved in the crime,” said police.
Choolaimedu police arrested Kombaiah and remanded him in judicial custody. A hunt has been launched for the absconding Arunachalam.
