Four arrested in relation to car rental scam
Following a special operation conducted in the Mirihana Police area, four persons were arrested for defrauding car rental businesses.
The suspects had rented cars from numerous rent-a-car businesses across the country by producing falsified documents, after which they had then sold the cars to third parties.
Six forged National Identity cards and drivers licenses that had been in the possession of the suspects at the time of arrest were recovered by the Police.
The four arrestees are due to be produced before the Nugegoda Magistrate's Court today (01), whilst further investigations are being conducted by the Mirihana Police.
Police Media Spokesman DIG Ajiith Rohana noted that all owners of car rentals be vigilant of the issue.
