The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) is investigating a robbery case in which six unknown armed robbers were involved in an accident with a stolen vehicle. In a statement seen by Pindula News, ZRP said some of the stolen goods were recovered. Reads the statement:
On 22/07/22, Police in Bulawayo reacted swiftly to a robbery report in which six unknown suspects pounced at a garage in Esigodini before stealing a Mazda T35 truck and other goods.
They intercepted the vehicle at the Mahatshula turn-off along Harare- Bulawayo Road and tried to stop it. However, the suspects did not stop. Instead, the driver veered off the road and lost control of the vehicle into a nearby bush, where they abandoned the Mazda T35 truck and vanished into the darkness.
Police recovered 3x5l Gtx oil, 7x500ml Gtx oil, 3x1litre Gtx oil, and the stolen vehicle. In another case, Police in Masvingo recovered a Honda Fit vehicle reportedly stolen from a complainant’s residence in Hillside.
The Police found the car dumped near Mucheke High School after being involved in a road traffic accident.
Investigations are underway.
