Two people were arrested in Thessaloniki who were cutting stolen vehicles, in order to exploit their metal.
At the same time, the theft of five vehicles owned by the Municipality in the area of Kilkis, which was in a state of immobility, was immediately investigated by police officers of the Security Office of the Paionia Police Department.
Specifically, a municipal employee complained that from 22 to 24 September, four old garbage trucks and a bus, all non-functional, were removed from the Municipality.
As part of the police investigation, a plot of land was located in an area of Thessaloniki, where vehicles were being transported and shredded, and two men from Pakistan, aged 23 and 28, respectively, were arrested during the operation. In fact, three of the stolen vehicles of the Municipality were located at the spot, two of which had already been dismantled. A case was also filed against the 58-year-old Greek owner of the plot.
The arrested will be taken to the Prosecutor of the Court of First Instance of Kilkis.
