Cyberabad police finally arrested ‘Jackie Chan’, a notorious burglar, who escaped twice from cops using his acrobatic skills. The burglar, whose real name is Mekala Venkatesh, had been avoiding the police for four years.

Central Crime Station, L.B. Nagar team recovered gold ornaments weighing 500 grams from him after the arrest on Wednesday. Venkatesh, hailing from Kurnool town, started committing thefts in 2005 when he was just 15 years old. 

“He was arrested by the Kurnool police in 18 robbery cases. He and his relatives were members of a gang which burgled houses in Kurnool. While undergoing imprisonment he gave the police escort the slip during transit at Jadcherla in 2007. He was arrested by cops in 2008,” said a senior police official from Cyberabad.

In 2012, while he was taken to Cherlapally in a police vehicle  he jumped off from the moving vehicle and escaped from the five escort cops. Due to his daring escapes he earned the name Jackie Chan.
