Capital authorities were kept on their toes on Thursday night as they put the kibosh on two separate theft attempts and saw to the arrest of three culprits.
First, two men tried making away with a woman’s purse but were thwarted on the escape. Constabulary returned the bag and phone inside to its owner.
Then later, they were put to the test again when a suspect snatched a phone off a French national.
Patrolling officers were at hand again to slap the cuffs on. All three thieves were sent to court.
