POLICE in Bulawayo have arrested a notorious motorbike thief from Nkayi who was in the habit of stealing from unsuspecting owners at night.
Bruce Ndlovu (31) was found in possession of five motorbikes stolen from Bulawayo between October 2019 and May 2021.
The value of the stolen motor bikes is estimated to be $546 000.
Ndlovu ran out of luck when he was recently found in possession of a stolen motorbike in Belmont Township in Nkayi.
Police received a tip off and apprehended Ndlovu who later confessed that he had been stealing motorbikes from Bulawayo and taking them to Nkayi overnight.
Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Abednego Ncube confirmed the arrests yesterday saying Ndlovu is facing theft charges.
“During the period stretching from October 2019 and May 2021, members of the public in Bulawayo were retiring for the night leaving their motor bikes outside their houses for lack of space only to wake up and discover that the bikes would have disappeared with no trace,” said Insp Ncube.
