In another development, Police has in its cells three suspected car robbers, who are part of a large group that police’s flying squad has been following for some time.

The trio have been identified as; Asuman Kayiwa, Richard Muganda and one Joseph Bbosa who claim to be mechanics.

According to Kampala Metropolitan Police Publicist, Ibin Ssenkumbi, the three were nabbed at Packwach as they were heading to Congo.

“We received intelligence information that one Fred Semambo who was in his Prado registration number UAQ727K was put on gun point and ordered out of the car and was dumped in Buwambo forest and they drove off,” Ssenkumbi said.

He adds that police was alerted in time and managed to arrest three of the four robbers they intercepted a few kilometres from Pakwach town.

“Semambo the driver of the Prado told us that he was put on gun point but we have not yet discovered the gun they were using, we suspect that the other robber escaped with it,” Ssenkumbi said.

These are part of the group which last year on the 23rd of December were nabbed in Arua with a stolen Toyota Harrier UAP120S us they were heading to Eastern Congo.

Police continues to warn the public to be strict on their car keys and which competent parking’s and washing bays they take their cars, because investigations reveal that the thieves connive with workers in these places, to duplicate the keys.

The trio are being held at Central Police Station Kampala, where they will face charges of armed robbery.
