MTA (20), who stole 30 sacks of blue caps from the houses of retired worker Halit Aydoğan (74) and his granddaughter university student Melike Sarıtaş (18), who provided wheelchairs to the disabled with the blue caps they collected, were caught in Eskişehir. The caps found in MTA’s house were delivered to the grandfather and grandson. Halit Aydogan, who could not control his tears in joy, said, “I was sad for my disabled brothers when he disappeared. Now I am happy with him.”
Melike Sarıtaş and her grandfather Halit Aydoğan, who delivered the wheelchairs they bought with the plastic blue caps they have collected for 14 years in Eskişehir, to more than 500 disabled people, the blue caps weighing 160 kilograms, which were found in 30 sacks in front of their house in Sümer Mahallesi of the Odunpazarı district, were stolen the previous day. The Provincial Security Directorate Public Security Branch teams, which acted upon the notice, determined that the suspect was MTA, in the examination of the images of the security and security cameras in the vicinity. While the suspect was passing by the house, it was determined that he filled the covers of the sacks on his electric and cased bicycle, and then drove away from there. The caps he stole were found during a search of MTA’s house, who was caught and detained. He was taken to the police station for his statement after undergoing MTA health checks. The covers were delivered to Melike Sarıtaş and her grandfather Halit Aydoğan.
Halit Aydoğan said that they were very happy that the suspect was caught and the covers were found. Shedding tears of joy, Aydoğan said, “May Allah be pleased with the entire police force, they searched like digging a well with a needle and they found it. Last time I cried with sadness, but this time I am crying with joy. I am trying to make all my disabled brothers and sisters happy in Turkey. I am happy with him. Thank you very much to everyone. Our police teams found and brought them in a short time,” he said.
University student Melike Sarıtaş said that she was not very hopeful that the covers could be found, but that the police teams found them in a short time. Sarıtaş said, “We are very happy that we have our covers. Frankly, we were not very hopeful. We thought that Alan had already taken it. But thanks to our police units, they found it as soon as possible. We thank our Governor Erol Ayyıldız and Police Chief Engin Dinç. “We will make many disabled people step up with these covers. We would be their window to freedom. They stole the hope of our disabled people, but sooner or later the goodness found its way,” he said.
The investigation is ongoing.
