Criminals Steal Ammunition, K80, 000 from Chipata Businessman

About six unknown criminals have stolen over 60 ammunition and more than K80, 000 from the owner of Kavulamungu Bargain Centre.

The criminals tied Mr Mitter and his six guards at his residence in Chipata, before getting away with ammunition and money.

Eastern Province Police Commissioner Luckson Sakala said the unknown criminals armed with an AK 47 riffle broke into Mr Mitter’s houseĀ  on Sunday night.

The Police Commissioner explained that Mr. Mitter, who was not at home when the criminals broke into his house, was later tied together with his wife when he arrived around 20:00 hours.

Mr. Sakala told Breeze FM News that the criminals also stole two pistols belonging to Mr. Mitter.

He said anyone with information leading to the arrest of the criminals will be given a reward of K25,000 as the matter is currently being investigated.

Mr. Sakala has warned members of the public to be alert and report any suspicious persons to the police.

    Another very sad incident in Chipata. Whn criminals are armed with firearms which are for exclusive use by our men znd women in uniform , we all get worried. Where are such weapons coming from? Sadly when the police revover such weapons, no reports are issued as to which arm of the state the weapons may hv come from.

    Police should inform the residentsof CHIPATA were these firearms which are used by these criminals are gotten coz it’s strange for criminals to be in possession o f such weapons.If any officers from any security agencys are involved let them be flushed out of the system.Dont cover officers who are criminals like those officers who stole from the criminals who stole from a known bank in Lusaka.They are still moving in streets of chipata
