Chain snatched from woman

Staff Reporter

CHENNAI: A woman was relieved of her four-sovereign gold chain by an unidentified person at Arumbakkam on Friday.

Police said when Seetha (20) was alone in her house in Kannappan Nagar at noon, a stranger came asking for her husband, Elangovan, a carpenter. He told the woman that he had been asked to come by her husband. As the man was not at home, the stranger went away after taking the mobile number of the carpenter.

Sometime later, he came to Seetha's house claiming that the phone number given by her was not correct and he wanted to get it right. She checked the number and gave him the number again. The stranger came for the third time, complaining that the number was not correct and he wanted the woman to call her husband. Even while she was making the call, the intruder snatched the chain from her and escaped.

House break-in

Thieves broke into a house in Kotwal Chavadi and took away four sovereigns of jewellery and Rs. 5,000 in cash when the inmates were away.

Police said Subramani, a resident of Ramasamy Street, in the area was not in town. When he returned home on Friday, the main door of the house was found broken open.
