A 27-year-old man, Olayemi Adeoye, who the police said has a notoriety for stealing of Honda CRV and jeeps, was rearrested yesterday by the police in Ondo State while attempting to steal a jeep.
Adeoye said he was a welder, but derived joy in stealing cars, especially CVR cars with master keys. The suspect had been arrested and charged to court for a similar offence in the past.
Ondo State Police Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph, said the suspect’s method was to go to where any vehicle was parked and use his master key to open any car.
He said in the last two years, he had been involved in stealing 32 cars, adding: “The shocking aspect is that he always gets out of the case and finds his way back to the society to commit more crimes.”
He was paraded on Thursday along with two other suspects, identified as Waheed Anifowose and Paul Ayeni, who allegedly worked with him.
