Mbarara: Man Netted Stealing $150M from DFCU

Police in Mbarara are holding a 45year old man who allegedly attempted to illegally withdraw USD45, more about 000 from DFCU Bank’s Mbarara Branch.

Johnson Bindu, healing a resident of Ishure Cell, Katebwa Sub County in Kabarole district was arrested at the bank on Monday while forging signatures.

The suspect according to bank authorities had successfully withdrawn an unspecified amount of money in April this year from the same bank. His luck however, ran out this time when he attempted to withdraw 45,000 this week.

Bank employees upon noticing him attempting to forge signatures alerted police which rushed in and arrested the suspect.

Justice Niwagira, the DFCU Bank manager for Mbarara Branch while speaking to Chimpreports confirmed the matter but declined to give more details about the case saying that police is handling the investigations and expects to have it conclusively handled.

OC-CID Taban Chiriga said the suspect possessed a forged passport indicating that the bank account he was attacking was his.

Among the complainants was Azarious Baryaruha one of the clients of DFCU bank and a resident of Bushenyi working with African Pearl Safaris in Kabalagala Kyadondo.

Taban said the case is registered under CRB 2003/2016 as investigations are still ongoing and later Johnson will be taken to court and charged of forgery and obtaining money by false pretence.
