Metro station robbery: redux

Ramit's police complaint (made by way of some suitable boffin) resulted in the police going to the station the next day and arresting two people expanding their cellphone collection by the same means as before. They may not be the same people whom Ramit met, but the indications are that at least ten people are involved and—as we suspected—this is something that has been going on for a while.

I wonder if the earlier victims complained to the police. It's hard to believe that none of them did; so perhaps their complaints arrived too lown down the police hierarchy to prompt any serious action.

But I hope the cops find every one of the robbers now.
