Masked mega-thief captured after two-year hunt

The criminal security sector of the Ministry of Interior has halted the operations of a prolific thief who conducted thefts from residential apartments, vehicle tires, power generators, and appliances from camps over approximately two years. About 40 cases have been officially registered against him across Kuwait’s six governorates. The suspect, born in 1989 and staying in the country illegally, confessed to numerous crimes, particularly in the Hawalli and Salwa areas. He was apprehended by detectives in Hawalli, and two vehicles used in his thefts were seized.

A specialized task force was formed to track the thief’s movements, especially in Hawalli Governorate, where there was a surge in theft cases involving vehicle tires and gas cylinders. The thief operated under the cover of darkness, wearing a mask. Surveillance footage helped identify the vehicles used by the thief, leading to his arrest. He admitted to selling stolen goods in the scrap market and confessed to approximately 15 thefts in Hawalli Governorate. Only three cases were officially registered, classified as misdemeanors.

Moreover, the suspect confessed to a wider range of thefts, including power generators and various items stolen from camps over the years. It is believed that the total number of his thefts may exceed 100 cases. The suspect will undergo further investigation to determine the full extent of his criminal activities.
