Botswana Police Service
POLICE WEEKLY CRIME REPORT FROM 06/02/2012 TO 12/02/2012
20/02/12

The police have arrested a number of suspects in on-going special operations conducted in Dibete Gate, Gaborone and surrounding areas.

 

Over 80 suspects were arrested for various offences among them possession of suspected stolen property, entering Botswana through ungazetted points of entry, possession of unprescribed drugs, possession of an offensive weapon and unlawful transaction of foreign currency. Some of the arrested suspects have since been linked to cases that have been pending investigations.

 

In one of the cases three men aged between 29 and 34 years were arrested in connection with the offence of post office breaking and theft in Mabutsane and Bokaa post offices. The suspects led the police to the other suspects where the police recovered various vouchers for Mascom, be-MOBILE and Orange companies worth over P13 000.  

The police will continue to employ all possible strategies to curb crime in the country. The police also reiterate that there would be no market for stolen goods if people desist from buying suspected stolen property.
