Police: PA Arabs Behind Many Fraud, Theft Incidents


Police on Sunday arrested two PA Arabs who are suspected of being behind dozens of incidents of financial fraud and theft. The suspects would order merchandise from stores throughout Israel and make up to meet delivery personnel at the gas station on Road 443, where they would steal the merchandise and threaten the delivery personnel with violence. In the investigation, police took on the role of merchants and arrested the suspects when they tried to rob them.

Police have asked the court to extend the suspects' remand.
