Three persons have been arrested for allegedly stealing over 100 smart phones from a shop in Maharashtra's Palghar district, police said Wednesday. The accused, including two natives of Bihar, allegedly broke into the shop in Vasai area in January and decamped with 107 smart phone handsets worth around Rs 10 lakh, police spokesman Hemant Katkar said.

While probing the case, the police got information that some of the stolen phones were operational at Muzaffarpur in Bihar, he said. The Palghar police team went to Bihar and nabbed two persons - Arman Attaur Rehman (20) and Navsad alias Salim Jamshed Shaikh (34) - from Muzaffarpur and Sitamarhi districts last week and recovered 25 handsets from them, he said.

Based on the information provided by them, the police arrested another accused, Radheshaym alias Ajay Prasad Sahana (31), from Nallasopara area here on Monday, Katkar said. Efforts were on to recover the remaining booty, he said, adding more arrests were likely.
