SWAKOPMUND, 16 JAN (NAMPA) – The Namibian Police Force in Erongo launched a search for suspects who broke into the Pep store at Usakos and stole a number of items over the weekend.
Deputy Commissioner Erastus Iikuyu from Walvis Bay in an incident report on Monday said no one is arrested and the police are still trying to establish how many suspects were involved in the alleged burglary.
The value of the stolen items are also yet to be determined.
Iikuyu said the alleged crooks broke the padlock of the gate to enter the yard, then climbed on top of the roof, cutting the corrugated iron sheets to gain entry into the store.
They allegedly committed the theft in broad daylight at around 13h00 on Saturday or Sunday.
“The suspects took a lot of goods such as cellphones, clothing, suitcases and foodstuff,” the report indicated.
There were reportedly no guards or surveillance cameras inside or outside the shop.
The police is requesting the public to provide them with information which could lead to the arrest of the suspects and recovery of stolen goods.
