Vulcanizer arrested for stealing customer’s pant
A vulcanizer, Dele Ope, has been arrested by the Ogun State police command, after stealing a pant belonging to his client.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, the command’s spokesperson, said this in a statement on Sunday.
Oyeyemi said the suspect, 22, was arrested after the woman reported the incident of her missing pant at Warewa police division.
According to him, the woman discovered that she had a flat tyre when she wanted to go out, which was the reason why she invited the vulcanizer to fix the tyre.
“After fixing the tyre and left, she discovered that her pant that was spread on a rope within the compound is missing.
“Since the vulcanizer was the only person who came to the compound, she went round in search of him but he was no where to be found.
“Upon the report, the DPO Warewa division , SP Folake Afeniforo, detailed detectives to the area where the suspect was traced and arrested. His house was quickly searched and the woman’s pant was recovered there in.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed stealing the pant with the intention of taking it to an herbalist for money making ritual,” he said.
He added that Kenneth Ebrimson, the commissioner of police, has ordered that the suspect be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.
