Police last week arrested an unrepentant serial burglar who was released from Chikurubi Maximum Prison on similar charges following a spate of unlawful entries on various premises in Harare last week.
Central Intelligence Department (CID) Highlands Assistant Inspector Joshua Muzanago confirmed the arrest of 56 year old serial burglar Lamusi Ntula who had gone on a rampage breaking into houses and offices to steal television sets, laptops, cell-phones, clothing and various other items.
“Of late we have realised that there has been an upsurge of unlawful entry into premises, and we then set up a team and then realise there was one notorious burglar Lamusi Ntula who was released from Chikurubi prison on similar charges.
“We managed to carry out a raid and arrested him recovering property such as plasma televisions laptops cash clothing and various other items,” said Ass Insp Muzanago.
Ass Insp Muzanago also said that the four complainants who came to the police station identified their belongings and he urged members of the public not to leave their premises unattended especially when they are travelling for some time.
