Two suspects involved in a string of break-ins and robberies in Mount Lebanon were arrested in Nahr al-Mawt, the Internal Security Forces reported Wednesday in a statement.

On Sunday, the ISF arrested a suspect, identified as Syrian national M.T., born in 1993, after dual robberies were reported in Ghazir and Haret Sakhr, the statement said.

M.T. allegedly admitted to stealing LL5 million ($3,305) from an ice cream store in Ghazir, as well as 15 phones and an iron safe, estimated to be valued at LL1.7 million ($1,123), from an electronics store in Haret Sakhr.

He also confessed to carrying out two other operations, and claimed he had an accomplice, Syrian national M.Z., born in 2000, who was helping him sell the stolen items.

M.Z. was arrested the same day and admitted to the crime, the ISF said.
