Mangochi Police Station Public Relations Officer Sub Inspector Amina Tepani Daudi, has confirmed saying that the teenager was arrested over house breaking and theft and he will appear before court after completion of paperwork.

According to Daudi, upon being quizzed, he led the team from the Investigation branch to two houses within the township where police recovered some items suspected to have been stolen from various houses.

“The items include; three plasma TVs, 54 flat screen TV, 11 speakers, two LG monitors, four DVD players, two carpets, a six-inch double mattress, two cellphones, six remote controls, pressing iron and a laptop bag containing assorted breaking equipments with all items worthy K2.5 million,” Daudi said.
