POLICE ACTIVELY HUNTING DOWN SUSPECTS BEHIND THEFT OF TWO UNHCR VEHICLES

The Territorial Police in West Nile and Arua, have intensified the hunt for two Saracen (U) Ltd, guards, who abandoned their guns and disappeared from their guard point at the UNHCR offices on the 14.12.2021. the facts indicate that a group of thugs broke into the UNHCR offices located at Yumbe road in Mindreba village. The thugs vandalised the CCTV cameras and robbed two high value vehicles from the parking yard included a Toyota Landcruiser Double Cabin Pick-up reg no. UBE 496B and an Ambulance Toyota Landcruiser UBK 403M under registration number UBE 496B and UBK 403M respectively. A third motor vehicle was vandalised and left in the parking.

The vehicles were tracked down and established to be in the North Eastern DRC. An alert was sent to our counterparts who impounded and parked them at Arua Police Station. Each year, cars are stolen and driven into the North Eastern DRC, where they generally remain. The proximity of West Nile to the North Eastern, DRC and the strong demand for 4WD vehicles are two contributory factors to the theft of motor vehicles from Ugandan.

Efforts are now in place through Interpol, to have the two high value vehicles, transferred to Uganda.
