Many PA Residents in Car-Theft Bust


An undercover operation by police, Border Police and the Israel Defense Forces resulted, Monday evening, in the arrest of 23 people, most of the residents of Area A - with the highest level of Palestinian Authority security control - on suspicion of serious vehicle-theft offenses. They face hearings for the extension of their remand on Wednesday.

Dozens of searches were made in the homes of the suspects, chop shops and warehouses. Stolen cars, dozens of engines and parts were seized, as were documents, weapons and other property.
