Police in Gasabo District have recovered an assortment of electronics, which were stolen from a sound system store in Kabuga, Rusororo Sector last week.
Police spokesperson for the central region, Supt Emmanuel Hitayezu said that the computer, scanner, printer and home theatre were recovered from the suspected thieves on March 29 in Remera sector where they were apparently trying to sell them.
He said that following the theft that occurred in the night of March 26 in Kabuga trading centre, the victim identified as Samuel Turatsinze filed a case at Rusororo Police station, and investigations were immediately commenced.
“During investigations, were received information from a suspicious resident in Remera about three people, who were selling electronics, and the dispatched officers, arrested them red-handed with all the missing gadgets,” said Supt. Hitayezu.
“We have since arrested four people identified as Marie Gisele Nyirasafari, Jean Claude Ndaruhutse, Felicien Mudahemuka, and Evariste Muhoza,” he said.
Investigations indicate that theft was orchestrated and implemented by Muhoza, who then hid the stolen items in the house of Nyirasafari.
This is when Nyirasafari recruited both Ndaruhutse and Mudahemuka to look for buyers, but they were arrested before accomplishing their criminal plan.
“Investigations would have been difficult if the victim hadn’t filed the case in time and without the role of the public, who are instrumental in the day-to-day policing activities,” said the spokesperson.
The gadgets have since been handed back to the rightful owner.
