The Police Command in Enugu says it has arrested notorious car snatchers on Nsukka Road near Enugu.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Ebere Amaraizu, said in Enugu on Thursday that the suspects were arrested through intelligence information gathered by the operatives.

Amaraizu said that through a well-coordinated operation carried out on August 7, the Udenu Division of the force nabbed the suspects.

He also said that the suspects snatched a Lexus SUV with registration number 954 BH from the owner in Aba, Abia, and were escaping through Nsukka axis near Enugu where they were nabbed.

According to him, the suspects are now regretting their actions because they (suspects) lamented that they never knew that police operatives would nab them since they were almost escaping.

In other words, they do not regret the crime, they regret being caught.

He said that the three suspects were helping the operatives in their investigations and would be formally handed over to the Abia Command for further investigation.
