The New Police Spokesperson Kituuma Rusoke says that the suspects were arrested from the areas of Bunamwaya, Kawempe and Mukono for allegedly stealing cars in various parts of the country and selling them in neighbouring countries like DRC and South Sudan.

He adds that by the time of the arrests, the suspects were found in possession of suspected stolen motor vehicles which they had changed number plates while waiting to transport them to Democratic Republic of Congo.

Rusoke has however advised the public and the people having motor vehicles to always have car trackers in their vehicles to enable them to be tracked.
