Praying Man Gets Copper Cables Thief Arrested

Praying Man Gets Copper Cables Thief Arrested

An unnamed man who was conducting prayers in a bushy area near Greenlands farm in Umguza spotted copper cable thieves hiding their loot in a swampy area and notified the police.

Police in Bulawayo said the whistle-blower was praying on Wednesday last week when he saw the accused person, Tyson Ncube (27), who was driving a Toyota Hilux dropping two accused people about 50m away from where he was praying.

The two allegedly started rolling and hiding copper cables in a swamp area while Ncube drove off.

The resident who was conducting prayers stopped Ncube as he was about to drive away and apprehended him.

Ncube was interviewed by the police but denied any wrongdoing.

However, police officers searched the area and they recovered an orange electricity marshalling kiosk, a black electricity breaker, two cooling fans on the ground, and four by 50-meter ZESA underground copper cables which were hidden in a swamp.

The Sunday News quoted the Zimbabwe Republic Police spokesperson in Bulawayo Province as saying:

Police are appealing to members of the public to report all suspicious persons who might be dealing in illegal copper, and anyone found tampering with electricity equipment at any nearest police station.

We also appeal to anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the remaining two accused persons who are still at large to report at any nearest police station.
