An Amazon staff member was arrested for allegedly stealing electronic gadgets. Six others are suspected to be involved in the robbery.
Bengaluru: A staff member at the multinational company, Amazon, was accused of stealing electronic gadgets. Police suspect that six other people are involved in the crime.
The robbery came to light on May 17 (Friday), during a stock-check. Amazon authorities who scanned CCTV camera footage and discovered the truth filed a complaint with Siddapura police.
The complaint, filed by Amazon Transportation Services Pvt Ltd employee Jaskirat Singh Narula, accused Krishnan, the head of a warehouse facility of the e-commerce giant of stealing goods from the facility.
Based on the complaint police arrested Krishnan V, a resident of Manjunatha Nagar on Magadi Road, Bengaluru. Along with Krishnan, police suspect six other men, who reportedly worked in the Amazon regional branch in Arekempanahalli, near Lal Bagh, Bengaluru, of being involved in the crime.
Krishnan and the six other accused reportedly stole electronic gadgets and many other products that were stored in the area.
On April 17, it came to the notice of the authorities that few goods could not be delivered to their respective addresses as their barcodes were not clearly visible. The goods which were supposed to be returned, ended up being stolen.
When Amazon authorities examined CCTV footages while stock-checking, they discovered the truth about the stolen goods and later filed a complaint with police.
The police have arrested Krishnan and are looking into the involvement of the other six.
The police also recovered several mobile phones, Bluetooth headphones, footwear, kitchen appliances, bed sheets and grocery products from the accused.
