Suspects scheduled to appear in court on June 29th 2016.
PHILIPSBURG:— On the 22nd of April two suspects were arrested for chain snatching. In the morning of that day there was a failed attempt and in the afternoon on that same day the police bike patrol saw the snatching of a chain by three guys who looked identical to the suspects in the morning. Both incidents happened in the area of Front Street/ Back street/ Cannegieter Street.
The police reacted very quickly and because of this two of the three suspects were arrested. One of them tried to throw away the chain, but the chain was confiscated. Although the bike patrol went back to look for the victim, he was nowhere to be seen and he never came to the police station to claim his chain. The prosecutor’s office and the investigating team would like to return the chain to the rightful owner.
Therefore we are asking this person to get in contact with the police department in order to file an official complaint. He will also be asked to give a description of the chain. The investigation is still going on, since the third suspect has not been captured yet. The two suspects that were arrested are still in custody and on Monday the 16th of May the judge of instruction granted another 60 days. The court case is scheduled for June 29th 2016
