The Thane Police in Maharashtra on Friday claimed to have solved at least seven cases of house break-in in Navi Mumbai and Thane with the arrest of three men, reported the PTI.


According to the PTI, Allauddin Sayyed (26), Vishal Jadhav (24) and Suraj Tidke (24), the accused, traveled in stolen auto-rickshaws to commit crime at night and abandoned the vehicles afterwards, said a police official, as per the PTI.


Sayeed is a driver by profession while the other two work as porters, he said.


They carried out at least seven burglaries in Vashi, Sanpada, Rabale, Naupada, Vartak Nagar and Wagle Estate areas, the official added.

Police tracked down the trio after analyzing CCTV footage and receiving a tip-off about their movements on Thursday, the news agency reported on Friday.

Some cash, a mobile phone and an auto rickshaw were recovered and further probe was on, the official said.

Meanwhile, the police have registered two cases for illegal electricity consumption in different parts of Navi Mumbai, an official said on Friday, according to the PTI.

The power thefts were reported in the Panvel and Khandeshwar areas, he said.

A case was registered under the Indian Electricity Act, 2003 against a suspect, an owner of a stone quarry in Panvel, who allegedly stole electricity worth Rs 62.6 lakh over one year, the official said.

The accused allegedly directly tapped into the Maharashtra State Electricity Board's (MSEB) supply line for operations at his unit, he said.

The official said a separate case was registered against the suspect and his associate for stealing electricity worth Rs 14.8 lakh in Khandeshwar.

No arrests have been made so far, and an investigation is underway to ascertain the extent of the illegal consumption, he added. 

In an another incident, the Navi Mumbai police have registered a case after thieves broke into a temple and stole Rs 20,000 from a donation box on the premises, an official said on Friday, the PTI reported.

The incident at the Dutt Mandir in the Airoli area took place on the intervening night of February 21 and February 22, he said.

On a complaint by the temple trustee, the Rabale police registered a case on Thursday.

"About Rs 20,000 was stolen from the donation box. We are examining the CCTV footage of the temple to identify those behind the crime," said the station house officer of the police station, the news agency reported.
