Police in Malaba are tracking down unknown suspects who broke into Teso District Hospital Kocholya Tuesday night and stole two Suzuki motorbikes bearing government number plates.
Teso Deputy police boss Francis Wahome who confirmed the incident said that the thugs entered the hospital after cutting the fence and escaped with the two motorbikes that are routinely packed along the hospital‘s corridor.
Wahome however suspected that it could be an alliance with someone who works in the hospital as the motorbikes were not packed in the normal place along the corridor.
He said that police officers dealing with the crime related issues are on the ground chasing all possible leads in an attempt to have the culprits brought on book and dealt with to help curb the massive spates of theft in the area.
According to Wahome, the hospital administrator George Kipyatich has recorded a statement in Malaba police station and the crime team is currently collecting information on the scene. Once the investigations are complete and all statements recorded the police will take the right action.
He said that no one has been arrested or suspected having a hand over the incident and he promised to probe the matter and have the suspects apprehended.
The incident comes barely three months when robbers broken into Teso North District Headquarters and escaped with three motorbikes belonging to the Ministries of Social works, Agriculture and Constituency Development Office.
No suspect has been so far arrested over that incident.
