Police have also said that the trio belonged to the nomadic community and were eking out a living by begging near railway stations along with children. As they could not get enough money for consuming alcohol, they would seek work in houses and estates as maids and labourers and later would  steal valuables from the houses.

During the interrogation, they revealed that they had stolen ornaments from the house of an auto driver at Bajal in Mangaluru, a month ago. They were also planning to carry out thefts in houses in Uppinangady.

The arrested were produced before Magistrate, who remanded them in judicial custody.
