Thieves steal K100,000 from milling plant


THIEVES have broken into an Antelope Milling Limited outlet in Ndola’s central business district and stolen K110,000 cash.
Copperbelt commissioner of police Charity Katanga said in an interview yesterday that the robbery happened in the early hours of Sunday.
Ms Katanga said police have detained a security guard of Magnum Security Services, who was assigned to guard the premises, to assist with investigations.
She, however, withheld the identity of the security guard to avoid jeopardising investigations.
“Investigations are underway but we have not yet arrested anyone in connection with the theft,” Ms Katanga said.
Antelope Milling Limited director James Kaldis also confirmed that thieves had broken into his outlet and got away with over K100,000 cash.
Mr Kaldis is optimistic that the suspects will soon be arrested.
And BELINDA CHABALA reports that police in Kalomo have recovered 22 computers worth K99,000. The computers are said to have been stolen from Bwacha Basic School.
Southern Province commissioner of police Godwin Phiri also said police have recovered assorted household goods suspected to have been stolen.
He said six people were arrested and they appeared in the Kalomo Magistrate’s Court in connection with the theft.
Mr Phiri said in an interview yesterday that the computers and household goods were recovered last week after a tip from the public.
“Police in Kalomo district managed to recover 22 computers, which belong to Bwacha Basic School, and various household goods. These items were reported stolen in January this year,” Mr Phiri said.
He said that among the household goods recovered are laptops, plasma television (TV) sets, mattresses and mobile phones.
