“There was a power outage, we were robbed at a glance”

Deputy Director Muharrem A., “There was a power outage in our building. We thought it was from the mains, but when we went down and checked, we found that the ground line to the facility had been taken apart. The thief worked here for almost 3 hours. When we entered the energy room, we realized the doors or something were open, there were no cables. That’s how we realized we’d been robbed. Then when we watched the camera recordings, we saw everything clearly from the camera. He had already planned to rob both our building and the one across the street. He goes in there, he goes here, he stole them from us and then the iron in the basement. He moves around comfortably with a backpack on his back and a map on his collar. He acted like he was from a company. Because from time to time, the internet and electrical teams work here” used the sentences.


“We went to the police station after viewing the footage,” Muharrem A. said, “There I said to our manager, Nihat, ‘these robbers shouldn’t come in here any more while we were at the police station’ and what I said happened to us. While at the police station, they called from the building across the street and said the thief had returned. We gave the camera recordings and the necessary information to the police. We were very happy to learn that he had been caught. Because the day after the cables were stolen, when I left the apartment, I saw this boy standing on the stairs of the building across the street, but I couldn’t recognize him in the picture. . So I didn’t realize he was a thief. When I asked him if you lived in this building, he said “no”, then when I asked him at the door, he said “I am a child of this street”. Later, we chatted with him as the scrapper passed. I said our building had been broken into or something, and he joined us and talked to us. Then he asked if this building had another exit, and the junkyard said it was downstairs. Then the boy ran away. Then I told our manager, Mr. Nihat, that I was talking to a young man here and I suspected him of being a thief. When he watched the video, he realized that person was that thief. Luckily I didn’t recognize him then. A young boy could have beaten me after all. We went to Kağıthane Sadabad Police Headquarters. Thanks to them, they immediately sent 3 teams here. They also parked their vehicles here and worked in the neighborhood. Because the description of the thief is obvious after all. At that point, I pointed to Engin, who worked as a security guard at a company at the start of our street, and asked him if he knew this person. He also said that he knew him, that this person was Çağatay, and that he took him to the courthouse yesterday with a bucket of cable in his hand. he said.
