Ramallah – Ma’an – Palestinian Authority police in Ramallah said on Monday they confiscated and destroyed 72 stolen cars.

The police said the cars were crushed into “iron cubes” which will be sold in an auction. The proceeds will be transferred to the ministry of finance.

A statement said that other confiscated cars are awaiting a judge’s order to be destroyed.

Separately police said they arrested 10 people in Ramallah on charges of robbery and drug trafficking.

Eight of the suspects were charged in connection with the sale of hashish.

Another two were arrested for stealing 60,000 Israeli shekels worth of goods from a warehouse and cars.

The arrests of the two accused thieves came after a Ramallah resident complained that his car was stolen and the robbers demanded money in return for the vehicle.
