Upon making a follow-up using its registration number plate, they found it at Ruma town in a garage being dismantled.

“We have already nabbed the three suspects and we have banned them from operating a garage at the town until further investigation to ascertain if the Tuktuk was actually stolen," William said.

In the meantime,the suspects were arrested and locked up at Ruma town police station.
