Man who allegedly stole Benz hubcaps arrested

A 41-year-old man surnamed Hsu was arrested for allegedly engaging in the theft of over 150 Mercedes Benz hubcaps on Monday.

According to the Daan Precinct Heping East Road Office, a car owner called in earlier last month to report three separate incidents of thefts within a single month. What was notable about these thefts were the objects stolen: hubcaps with the Mercedes-Benz insignia.

Hsu reportedly collects these Mercedes-Benz hubcaps, which are valued at a price of NT$1500 brand new, according to local media reports.

After being informed of the alleged crime, the police looked at surveillance camera footage and found Hsu stealing the hubcaps.

Following a period of surveillance, the police took Hsu into custody for questioning and found 152 Mercedes Benz hubcaps in the man house on Monday along with the tools used to steal the caps.

Hsu has reportedly been involved in the theft of the hubcaps on 38 cars, with a net value of over NT$200,000 in stolen goods -- although it has been reported that he conducted these thefts for his own personal collection, rather than for resale.

The 41-year-old man has since been charged with theft. He is also a suspect in similar crimes in Zhongshan District and Zhongzheng District.
