A motorcycle which was reportedly stolen in Bugesera District was on Saturday recovered in Gakenke District.
The TVS motorcycle - RAB 632V - was allegedly stolen using a master key, from Fidele Ndagijimana, after breaking into his house at night located in Rugarama Cell of Mareba Sector.
“We disseminated information among our partners including the public and motorcyclists. On February 18, we received information from someone who had saw the motorcycle in Muhondo Sector where it was discovered and the suspected thief arrested,” IP Gasasira said.
He identified the suspect asJean Bosco Nshimiyimana who is currently detained at Rushashi Police Station.
“We have since informed our counterparts in Bugesera and the owner of the motorcycle has also been informed. ”
“It is possible that you can commit a crime but it’s unlikely that you will go way with it. We commend the role played by the general public in ensuring that crimes are prevented, and criminals are located and attested while stolen items are recovered,” he said.
Article 300 of the Penal Code stipulates that anyone guilty of theft without violence or threat shall be liable to a term of imprisonment of six months to two years and a fine of two to five times the value of the stolen property or one of the penalties.
