Chennai: Couple behind goat theft strike again at Korattur poultry shop | Chennai News


CHENNAI: A few weeks ago, it was two goats. This week, it was a clutch of chicken. The car-borne couple and a juvenile, who were caught on camera stealing the goats last week, struck at a broiler chicken shop in Korattur. CCTV camera footage of their latest theft went viral on Saturday.
The shop on Vallalar Street in Padi belongs to a man named Boopalan. When he found about 10 country chickens missing from his shop, he lodged a complaint at Korattur police station.
A case was registered and a team combed through CCTV camera footage at the shop. To their surprise, they found the thieves reaching the shop in a sedan around 5 in the morning.
The 10-minute-long clip shows the driver who was in a lungi, getting down and wtaching out for any signs of movement for a few minutes. In between, a boy is also seen getting down and boarding the car again.
A few minutes later, a woman sitting in the rear row opens the back door, after which the man brings chickens from the shop and dumps them in the car. He makes three more rounds then gets into the car and drives away.
Police launched a hunt for the suspects with the help of the car’s registration number. A few weeks ago, a woman complained that her goats went missing from Korattur. Police are verifying if the same gang is behind both incidents.
In the goat theft case, Indira, 56, of Amman Koil Street, left her goats tied to the front of her house. She woke up in the middle of the night on hearing the goats bleating and found a couple dumping her goats into a car. They soon escaped.
