Mangaluru, Oct 11,2017 : Gold ornaments and cash worth nearly Rs 4 lakhs were stolen from the house belonging to Sudheer Shetty at Sukananda Nagar near Karnad Mulky during the wee hours of October 10, Tuesday.
The thieves have decamped with jewels from the almirah apart from cash of Rs 90,000. As the family members had gone to bed at 12.30 am, the theft is said to have occurred after that. Sources said the clever thieves had managed to lift the keys kept in the hall after locking the main door.
Surprisingly, none of the family members woke up during the theft. This has given room for doubts as to whether the thieves had sprayed some intoxicants on them before committing the theft. They had even switched off the street lights before making they way into the house.
Senior police officials incuding Uma Prashanth, DCP( Crime) visited the spot. Further investigations are underway.
