On the morning of September 11, 2021, i Carabinieri of the Compagnia di Matera, during the daily control services of the territory, have arrested a 57-year-old from Bari for aggravated theft.
In particular, the subject in question, taking advantage of the failure to close a parked car near the hospital, broke into the vehicle to get hold of a mobile phone which had been left in office.
The criminal action, however, did not go unnoticed, in fact, some passersby, realizing what was happening, they asked for the intervention of the Carabinieri providing an accurate description of the evildoer.
The soldiers from the Carabinieri Station and the Matera Radio Section immediately converged on the spot which, following timely searches, they tracked down and blocked the subject in question.
The man, subjected to a search, was still found in possession of the stolen goods hidden in a backpack which led in tow.
The perpetrator of the theft was declared under arrest and the phone cell phone returned – perfectly intact – to the owner of the vehicle.
Worthy of appreciation was the fundamental contribution offered by the citizens who noticed the suspicious activity of the man and immediately contacted the carabinieri.
This result follows those already recorded in recent months, since the beginning of the current year, indeed, 17 people have already been identified and reported to the judicial authorities accused of thefts perpetrated in this provincial capital.a
