He said the suspect was arrested several times in Bayelsa alone, adding that he was once arraigned in Delta by the police for similar offence.
"Andrew is a habitual criminal. We have apprehended this suspect three times. The first time he stole some vehicles in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, we apprehended him in Bayelsa. The second time, he stole some vehicles in Ughelli, Delta State and brought them into Bayelsa, we were able to apprehend him.
"We were able to recover three vehicles from him and the matter was transferred to Delta State Police Command. The Delta State Police Command arraigned him before the court, however, I do not know whether he has finished serving his jail sentence or he was granted court bail because I am definitely sure he was not given police bail.
”On June 17, 2017, about 1pm, our policemen, while on routine stop-and-search operation at Akenfa area, flagged a Toyota with number-plate AG 599 YEN. The suspect zoomed off to avoid search. He was pursued and arrested by the policemen.
"The Toyota car was stolen from where it was parked at Green Villa, Biogbolo, Yenagoa. The owner has been identified. In the course of our investigation, we recovered many master keys.
He claimed that each of the keys costs N50, 000 and were brought in from Ghana. He said with the keys, he could open any vehicle no matter the make.”
