“The incident began with a report that I received from a local resident who lives near a home where Arab workers were doing renovations,” Yoel Belinitzky, head of Kfar Chabad’s security patrols, reported.
“She heard strange noises from the yard, and when she opened a window to see what was going on, she noticed two Arab thieves trying to break into her house. The woman was very scared and she started screaming for help.”
Security patrol volunteers arrived on the scene in minutes and it didn’t take them long to catch one of the thieves, although the other one got away.
The volunteers did not give up and they started searching the areas around Kfar Chabad in order to find the thief. Before long, officers from the civilian police and the military police joined in, and three hours later the security patrol volunteers located a suspicious vehicle in the new neighborhood of Kfar Chabad. Inside were four Arabs.
“Of course, not a single one of them was exactly a tzaddik,” said Belinitzky. “All of them had a past record of burgling homes and they were taken for questioning. One of them was the fugitive thief, who was arrested on the spot and will be interrogated by the police and the Border Police for stealing agricultural products and livestock.”
