A Beitbridge police detective and his accomplice recently appeared in court for stealing a Mercedes Benz Viano at gunpoint.

Enos Mudhumbu (39) and Jonathan Nyambuya (45) were facing robbery charges when they appeared before Harare magistrate Mr Tendai Mahwe.

They were remanded in custody to June 29.

It is alleged that on June 12 at around 7pm, the complainant was at home when the duo entered into his yard. The court heard that they both produced pistols and pointed them at the complainant threatening to shoot him if he dared to resist their demands. It is alleged that the pair demanded the keys of a Mercedes Benz Viano, which was parked in the yard and the complainant complied.

It is the State's case that the two bundled the complainant into the vehicle and drove for about 16km before dumping him.

The complainant made a report at Themba Police Station.

The court heard that the complainant later activated the vehicle tracking system and the car was monitored on GPS tracking system crossing Beitbridge Border Post on June 13. The South Africa Police, it is alleged, immediately advised Interpol Harare.

Acting on information from Harare, detectives from CID Triangle intercepted the car at Zaka Turn off and arrested the occupants.
