The Police Anti-Crime Unit (ACU) led by Chief Superintendent Gorgie L Mboob recently arrested two teenagers and a man for allegedly stealing CFA 7. 5 Million, $1, 100 and other valuables from a shop in Bakoteh.
The arrestees are Omar Mbye 18, from Latri Kunda, Kebba Gaye 19 and Modou Nyahateh 20, both from Mbayen Village in the Central River Region, CRR.
Police spokesperson Superintendent David Kujabi said the men used car jacks to break doors and windows of their victims.
He also revealed that two other men, Ousman Mballow and Sulayman Trawally known as ‘Gun Man’ were arrested for allegedly exchanging cannabis with a motorbike.
This raid by Police Anti Crime Unit is the second biggest arrest by the police after the arrest of 51 people few weeks ago.
Speaking further, PRO Kujabi described the arrest of the teenagers as mind blowing and very sad.
“And what is more worrying is that these people may be young but are well connected since they have been breaking into cars, stores and homes selling valuables to fishermen at Tanji and at the border in Karang,” Kujabi said.
He said the men would soon be taken to court.
