Kampala: Old Kampala Police yesterday at around 0400 hours carried out an intelligence-led joint operation with the Military Police in Kakajjo Zone in Kisenyi II Parish, Kampala Central Division, Kampala Capital City where over 60 suspects were arrested.
According to Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire, the 60 suspects were arrested after being found with four suspected stolen phones, breaking implements and a UPDF uniform shirt.
Other dangerous items like live ammunition, master car keys, pliers and loads of narcotic drugs were recovered in the residences of the suspects arrested.
Notable among the suspects are: Fahad Kabogoza, Asia Atimango and Adam Opwonya, who are all known notorious criminals in Kisenyi area.
Luke says that these are suspected to be ring leaders of the criminals who have been riding motorcycles and attacking members of the public before stealing all their properties.
As a result therefore, Police preferred charges against them of being in possession of suspected stolen properties, since lady handbags and phones were recovered in their possession.
Other charges include being in possession of breaking implements and government stores. All charges against them have been sanctioned by the State Attorney.
“The suspects are to appear in court today and as Police, we shall keep carrying out these operations with an aim of having a crime-free society,” said Luke.
