Erode: High-drama was witnessed here when a 27-year-old man, who allegedly stole a two-wheeler, kept police on tenterhooks for four hours threatening that he would commit suicide if they tried to arrest him before finally being taken into custody, police said.
The vehicle was later found abandoned in Singara Street, Anthiyur and when police traced his house, they found it was locked from inside.

Police sources said Shanmugavel threatened police that he would commit suicide if they tried to enter the house and arrest him. Police tried to pacify him for more than three hours. Finally some policemen scaled over the house-roof, removed the tiles, jumped in and arrested him.
A case of two-wheeler theft was registered against Shanmugavel and he was remanded to judicial custody on Wednesday.
