The head of a major car theft ring is behind bars, after he was arrested by officers by the special LAHAV 433 investigative unit, police said on Thursday.

Qalqiyah native Adal Abu Dahil, 30, was arrested by police in Kfar Qassam, where he has been living illegally.



According to police, Abu Dahil and the rest of the gang had a simple mode of operation: they would burglarize houses in central Israel and hunt for the homeowners car keys and make off with their vehicle.

On Thursday, Abu Dahil was taken for a hearing at the Rishon Letzion Magistrate’s Court, where his remand was extended by five days.
