Cops nab car burglars after helicopter chase

Date Posted: 2008-08-30

The excitement was in an unlikely place, on an Ikei Island beach, where police took to the air to capture a team of car thieves.

The three thieves were breaking into cars while owners were enjoying beach activities, stealing money, laptop computers and whatever other goods they could find inside. Cops got the word during a call from a car owner who said his car window had been broken out and his money and other things were missing.

A Prefecture Police helicopter happened to be in the area, patrolling the Ikei Island beach in Uruma City’s Yonashiro area, and was asked to give aid to local police. The thieves were in the process of escaping the island, but the chopper cops spotted the vehicle and tracked them from above. The thieves finally abandoned the car and tried running into a housing area, but the helicopter team was able to keep them in sight and guide police units on the ground to the men, who were then arrested.
