Armed robbers caught red-handed on camera looting in a GTel shop



GTel shop break in

Armed robbers caught red-handed on camera looting in a GTel shop. An armed gang of thieves was caught red-handed on camera looting electronics in a GTel shop in Mutare. The Zimbabwean mobile phone company which is close to Mutare Central Police Station lost high-end cellphones valued at more than $70 000 following the robbery.

In the video footage captured on the CCTV system, which was availed to the Manicapost, the gang was caught in action as they went about their dastardly business. The break-in is reported to have been done in a flash, just under a minute and 28 seconds.

The suspects, who were driving a silver Toyota Runx, pounced at the shop at exactly 12.55 am and threatened the two security guards who were manning the premises with death. Consequently, the guards fled the scene. The robbers gained entry after they smashed the entrance door with an iron bar. While inside, the marauding thieves ransacked the shop and took a total of 16 cellphones that were on exhibition.

After emptying the displays, the robbers jumped into the vehicle and drove off. GTel Zimbabwe security officer Mr Kudakwashe Memory Munyonho confirmed the incident. All our shops countrywide have CCTV systems that are able to capture both video and audio. They are manned 24/7 at the head office in Harare and we were able to capture this break-in.

As you can see in the footage we managed to capture the faces of some of the robbers as well as recording what they were saying. All this information is useful in ongoing investigations. The matter is now being handled by detectives at CID Mutare, but we are also carrying out our own investigations so that we speedily bring these culprits to book.
