KUWAIT: Nuwaiseeb detectives arrested a citizen who made his friend believe that he shipped his car to a Gulf country, although he dismantled it and sold it as spare parts to a Fahaheel garage. A security source said a Gulf national told Nuwaiseeb police that his 19-year-old Kuwaiti friend tricked him into believing that he will help him ship his car to a Gulf country as soon as the paperwork is completed. When a long time passed by and nothing happened, the friend began to avoid him, until finally the Gulf national lodged a complaint. Detectives took over the case and located the residence of the suspect and arrested him. He confessed to the charges, adding that he dismantled the car and sold the parts to a Fahaheel garage. Detectives went to the garage and found the parts the suspect had sold and they were confiscated.
