KSA police nab gang who targeted sleeping truckies
Gang stole tyres while truckies slept, then sold them back to victims
Five men were arrested by Saudi authorities after stealing tyres from big rigs parked at truck stops in the Muzzamiyah area along the Riyadh-Makkah highway – while drivers slept inside their trucks.
According to Riyadh police, the brazen Asian thieves had been active in the area for months – and even had the audacity to sell the stolen tyres back to desperate truckies through a nearby shop.
Truckies were so desperate to keep moving that they would unwittingly buy stolen tyres to avoid wasting time looking for thieves.
Police nabbed the gang during a stakeout and raid. Some thieves tried to make a run for it, and some resisted arrest – but all five were eventually apprehended. They also led police to the place where they had hidden a stash of stolen goods.
