THIEVES broke into Luanshya Central Police station and stole a laptop valued at K 4,500, district commissioner (DC) Joel Chibuye has confirmed.

Mr. Chibuye said the theft occurred on Wednesday night when the thieves broke into the building through a window.

Mr. Chibuye said police were still investigating the matter and no suspect had been apprehended in connection with the theft.

He explained that the office broken into was for the station’s assistant superintendent staff officer.”In terms of a breaking in yes I can confirm that there was break in at Luanshya Central police and we are investigating the matter. No one is in custody.

“I went there physically and was shown the office that was broken into and the only thing stolen was a laptop worth K4,500. No recovery has been made. They are still investigating,” Mr Chibuye said.

When contacted, Copperbelt police commissioner Charity Katanga said she had not been briefed and was personally visiting the police station in question.

Earlier, Ms. Katanga disclosed that a Chinese national, a resident of Ndola was robbed of coins worth K30, 000 on Tuesday around 18:00 hours.

Ms. Katanga identified the Chinese national as Song Sunshen, 32, of house number 4 on Airport Road Itawa.

She explained that the incident happened after Sunshen went to the mall and left three security guards at his house. But upon return, he found the rear left window of his car broken and the security guards had also run away. “The money was allegedly stolen from a Toyota Ragius registration number ADT 3933 grey in colour by the security guard left to guard the house,” she said.

    • This is embarrassing !! Fire all those sleeping police officers at this police station, including the officer in charge. Charity Katanga should also be suspended pending investigations to determine whether or not she is suitable to continue in her present position as CB Police chief.

    • THOSE ARE EASY THUGS TO CATCH- JUST REPLAY THE CCTV AND WATCH THEM. IF ZP CANNOT SAFE GUARD THEIR PREMISES HOW DOES ANYONE THINK AND BELIEVE THEY CAN SAFE GUARD PROPERTY AND LIFE FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC. YOU HAVE EVEN CHASED THE CHINESE POLICE RESERVES WHO HAVE THE REAL CCTV AND WOULD SUGGESTED THE IMPLEMENTATION OF STATE-OF-THE-ART CCTV FROM CHINA. AS I SAID- JUST WATCH THE CCTV OF THAT NIGHT OR DAY.

    • This is extremely embarrassing and dumb. A police station should be equipped with security cameras, with someone watching the CCTV 24/7, to see if any intruders are trying to break into the station. Windows also should be equipped with sensors, so that if someone breaks it or opens it an alarm goes off. This is the 21st Century, and not the 1960s. Wake up!!

    • There is more to this than meets the eye. Why would these thieves steal a laptop of all things? Why would they run the risk of breaking into a district Police Station?

      They were not interested in the value of the laptop- they were after the information on the laptop! These were no doubt ex military individuals that were after sensitive information. No civilian such as a police officer or a kawayawaya kabova can do this.

    • Nostra the china man came from harvesting from his bonanza machines, that’s what zambians wasted on those crazy slot machines, the chinese have taken over everything including coins. Ask any kid what they will do with a chi coin, answer :go and play bonanza.

    • @Kabwe Kabwe…That’s not the solution, you dumb guy. What’s so difficult about setting up a CCTV and have someone monitoring it? Do you need Chinese reserve cops to do that? Id1ots like you will sell this country to foreigners. When are you black people going to do things by yourselves? You want foreigners to do everything for you. You might as well be colonized again, because you’re way too stup1d to do anything by yourselves.

    • WHO SAID IT WAS AN OUTSIDE JOB. THEY BROKE INTO…LOL, “Thieves break into Luanshya Central Police station”. NOT, “Thieves break ‘OUTSIDE’ Luanshya Central Police station”. IN ANY CASE, WHETHER IT WAS AN INSIDE JOB OR OUTSIDERS DID IT, THE FACT REMAINS THE SAME THAT IF THE CHINESE WERE RETAINED/KEPT OUR POLICE MEN AND WOMEN WOULD HAVE LEARNT SOME WORK ETHICS AND POSITIVE WORK CULTURE FROM THE CHINESE PEOPLE. WORK CULTURE IN ZAMBIA IS BELOW FREEZING POINT.BATULO BA POLICE BAPA ZAMBIA. POLICEMAN PA RECEPTION ALILALA SENSELESSLY.

  2. This is an I side job. It shows how rotten our security system has become. Find and prosecute the cop who organised it.

  3. Cheek and daring thieves, breaking into a Police Station! There should be officers present at the front office round the clock. How can it be explained that the thieves broke into the office and got away with the laptop without detection? Those in attendance were most likely fast asleep or its another of those “bull and cock” stories!!!!

  4. police stations operate 24/7….such incidences are just indicators of what expect in the near future because of the unfavourable environment the so called leaders of today have put us in…hunger drives a person to go to extremes..do unexpected just to get the ends meet…

  5. This is a straightforward issue: the laptop had incriminating evidence against some big fish. The police chaps on duty are paid to make the laptop disappear. Finished!

  6. If these were serious Policemen, they would be ashamed to report this issue to the Press and so should be their appointing authority, the only problem is that ba Koswe tabakwata insoni.

  7. Simply means the robbers are more serious with their work than the lazy Zambia Police. Actually I suspect a mole amidst the officers. It’s an inside job. Who is the main suspect?
