This Friday (02), a man suspected of breaking into and stealing from a restaurant in Passo Fundo, in the north of Rio Grande do Sul, was arrested under unusual circumstances. The suspect was trapped in a hole he allegedly made in the ceiling of the commercial establishment.
The Military Brigade (BM) reported that two other people, also suspected of involvement in the crime, were hiding inside the restaurant’s ceiling. In light of this discovery, both were also detained. The three individuals detained are 28, 48 and 49 years old.
The incident occurred at around 3:20 am on Rua Tiradentes, in the Central Region of the city. The local security team called the BM, who initially identified the first suspect and then located the other two. During the approach, a television stolen from the restaurant was seized from their possession.
The detainees were taken to a police station and later taken to a prison house. The quick action of the authorities contributed to the resolution of the case and the arrest of those involved in the criminal act.
