A group of thieves broke the windshields of at least 10 cars and stole their music systems in a residential society in Kothrud recently. The thieves arrived at the spot in a car and committed the theft within minutes, police said.

The car break-ins and thefts were reported from Gananjay Society in Kothrud between 4 and 5 am on Friday. An FIR in this case was registered at Kothrud police station on Saturday by the owner of one of the cars.

Senior Inspector Meghshyam Dange, in-charge of Kothrud police station, said, “Preliminary examination of the security footage suggests the thieves came in a car and targeted cars parked on the road. They broke the windshields and took out the music systems. The total cost of stolen music systems is Rs 2.5 lakh. We are working on various available clues.”

A police officer said there were three suspects who were seen carrying metal rods and other tools. They went to the cars one by one and stole the music systems from each car within a couple of minutes, police said.

Dange added, “As far as we know, hardly anyone was alerted by the sound of breaking windows, possibly because most people were asleep. The police patrolling frequency is also lower during this time. The thieves may have taken advantage of this. We are taking steps to further increase patrolling frequency in the area.”
