Car stolen in Holland found in gang’s possession in Ankara
ANKARA – Doğan News Agency
One of the cars found in the possession of an Ankara-based criminal gang was stolen in the Netherlands, police stated on June 21.
The discovery was made after Ankara police busted a car theft gang and detained 13 of its members on June 21. The gang leader was arrested by a court order on the same day and judicial proceedings are reported to be ongoing for the other suspects.
The raid on the gang came following the police’s two-month physical and technical surveillance on the group with regard to car theft incidents, especially occurring in hospital parking areas.
Following their analysis, police determined that the suspects were stealing cars from hospital parking areas and then selling tires, keeping the rest of the parts in a storehouse.
The gang was reported to call themselves “Vikings.”
In addition to the car stolen from the Netherlands, police also discovered that the “Vikings” gang was in possession of a car sought by Interpol.
