Suspect sought on various charges caught while indulging in Adana kebab
A suspect sought on various charges was captured by police in the southern province of Adana after coming out of hiding to indulge in the famous local dish, the Adana kebab, daily Hürriyet reported on Feb. 1.
The man has been sought on charges that could land him with a sentence of nearly 36 years in connection with crimes including theft, the illegal drug trade, threatening, and injuring in the southern provinces of Adana, Osmaniye, Antalya and Mersin.
However, officials were only able to detect the 45-year-old suspect once he came out of hiding for the first time in order to settle down in a restaurant for a trademark Adana kebab.
The man tried to flee after law enforcement officials found him but he ended up being instantly caught.
“I have only just come out of where I was hiding and was planning to enjoy my favorite dish, the Adana kebab, for the first time since emerging,” the suspect was quoted as saying after his detention.
He was reportedly sent to pre-trial detention after initial court proceedings.
