Burglars Blow Up Texas Chicken Safe

Burglars broke into a Texas Chicken shop in Bulawayo city centre on Saturday night, used explosives to blast open a safe and stole more than US$6 000.

The shop is situated along Robert Mugabe Way between 4th and 5th Avenues.

Police in Bulawayo said the suspects covered the CCTV cameras with sacks and got away with US$5 828, R61 486 and ZW$10 530.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson in Bulawayo Province Assistant Inspector Nomalanga Msebele said:

Police in Bulawayo are investigating a case of unlawful entry and theft in aggravated circumstances where explosives were used to blast a cash safe box.

On 6 August 2022 at around 1800hrs, the complainant who works as a supervisor at a Texas Chickens shop situated in the CBD left for home after locking the shop doors and windows and setting the alarm system.

The next morning, the complainant received a call that the shop has been broken into.

The complainant got to the shop and discovered that the cash safe was blasted and cash amounting to US$5 828, R61 486-00 and ZW$10 530 was stolen.

Asst Insp Msebele urged members of the business community to seek the services of reputable security companies.
