Drunk Man Falsely Reports His Vehicle Stolen

Police investigations revealed that the alleged thief was a 23-year-old woman, who had previously been arrested for similar offences. They found out that the woman had made a duplicate set of keys and used them to steal the car. She had also sold the original set for K40,000 (KSh 259,000) to a local auto parts shop. The police believe that her intent was to use the money to celebrate International Women's Day.

Upon further investigation, they discovered that the woman had two other accomplices. The two were identified as Richard Chanda and William Chanda. Richard was a 28-year-old man with a long history of car theft and William was a 25-year-old man with similar charges.

The recovery of the stolen car and the successful arrest of the suspects is a testament to the diligence of the Ndola police force in tackling crime. They have managed to put a stop to the criminal activities of these individuals and, in doing so, have sent a strong and necessary message that crime does not pay.
