MAKES The soldiers of the Compagnia di Rende and Cosenza Command, in execution of an order for the application of a precautionary measure issued by the Court of Cosenza, at the request of the local Public Prosecutor’s Office, arrested two subjects, Cosenza, aged 23 and 30, held responsible for having committed various thefts to the detriment of commercial activities. The precautionary measures originate from the investigative activity carried out by the soldiers of the Carabinieri stations of Montalto Uffugo and Castrolibero, following the thefts consumed during the last summer period in some bars and tobacconists located in the municipalities of Montalto Uffugo, Marano Principato and Rovito.
Those arrested, under investigation for aggravated theft in competition, after having forced the access doors, entered the shops and then removed various goods including video surveillance systems; various tobaccos for a total value of € 3,557; Bank checks; receipts for a value of 300 euros; money contained in the “coin machines” up to the sum of 1,400 euros; bottles of spirits such as grappa, champagne and Dom Pérignon. The investigations carried out by the Carabinieri made it possible to identify the perpetrators of the offenses through a careful analysis of the various thefts carried out, characterized by the same modes of action. The subjects, in fact, carried out an inspection a few hours before in order to verify the presence of alarm systems or cameras; later, misrepresented by a head cover (baseball cap), they broke into the premises, forcing the entrance and then removing as many things as possible. At the end of the formalities, the two subjects, one restricted to the Paola Prison, the other under house arrest, were placed at the disposal of the Judicial Authority.
