Shortly after noon on September 15th, shoplifting was committed in two perfumery stores in the center of Ninove.
Intervention teams immediately started a search for the suspects who had fled, using the city cameras.
The two suspects who are staying in Brussels were caught just before they were to leave Ninove by public transport.
The duo was arrested and the arrest was confirmed by the East Flanders Public Prosecutor’s Office. After interrogation, the suspects received a direct summons to appear in court in Dendermonde on 26 October.
One of the suspects was transferred to the closed center for illegal immigrants in Bruges by order of the Immigration Department.
The stolen goods were returned to the owner.
