Suryajegadeesh and Ragupathy were held during a vehicle check after police intercepted them after learning that the registration number of the two-wheeler they rode, did not belong to them.
The duo confessed to the police that they along with Malleeswaran and Sabarinathan had stolen a car, two motorcycles and snatched 13 sovereigns of gold chains from three women. Five lakh, gold chains and stolen vehicles were also recovered from them. They were produced before a judicial magistrate court and later remanded in custody.
