A man responsible for robberies everywhere from Attard to Rabat, Swieqi, San Ġwann, Żebbuġ and Qormi has been arrested by the police.
The 37-year-old man from Georgia was caught in St Julian’s after officers had placed the man under surveillance for some days. A search in his apartment yielded some of the reported stolen items.
He was charged with theft today in court in front of Magistrate Axiaq.
The arrest comes as part of a string of operations being undertaken by the Criminal Investigation Department who have said that they will be increasing their efforts to battle organised crime rings in Malta.
