Daring Thief Nabbed After Stealing A Car From A Police Station

A daring thief was recently nabbed after he stole a car at a police station in Chinhoyi.

Blessing Chimbodza, 21, appeared before Chinhoyi provincial magistrate Ignatius Mugova facing car theft charges.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge but was found guilty as charged.

Allegations are that on April 7, at around 9:30 pm, Chitiga was at Chinhoyi main rank where he had a misunderstanding with a certain man, which led him to take to his heels, leaving behind his Toyota Mark II Grande vehicle unlocked and unattended.

Police were alerted and reacted swiftly to the scene. They discovered that the vehicle was being manned by Chimbodza, who alleged that he was the younger brother of Chitiga.

The police, with the assistance of Chimbodza, escorted the vehicle in the absence of the complainant.

Later on, Chitiga reported at Chemagamba Police Station driving another motor vehicle, a Toyota Allion which he parked at the police parking lot leaving his cellphone and US$50 inside the vehicle.

During interaction with Chitiga, police established that he was in a drunken stupor and was behaving in a disorderly conduct leading to his arrest.

Later on, Chitiga established that his Toyota Allion was missing from the parking bay.

The police made a  follow-up.

Chitiga informed his wife Prisca Munaka who then intercepted the stolen vehicle which was with Chimbodza in Rujeko leading to his arrest.

The cellphone and cash were missing from the vehicle.

The total value of the stolen property is ZW$341 544,00 and property worth $337 344.00 was recovered.

According to a local tabloid, magistrate Mugova sentenced Chimbodza to five years in prison before suspending two years of the sentence on condition of good behavior.

Chimbodza will serve an effective three years in jail.
