Three computers were stolen when the Namibian Traffic Information System (NaTIS) office at Okahandja was broken into early Wednesday morning.

Namibian Police Force (NamPol) spokesperson in the Otjozondjupa Region, Inspector Maureen Mbeha, in an interview with Nampa said the incident allegedly occurred around 02h00 on Wednesday.

It is alleged that four unknown men overpowered a security guard who was on duty at the building.

“After they overpowered him, the suspects tied his legs and arms with electric cables,” Mbeha said.

The suspects then proceeded to break into the NaTIS building, where they stole three computers valued at N.dollars 22 000.

Mbeha said the suspects however failed to cut open the strong room where the safe is stored and allegedly only managed to get away with the N.dollars 50 they had stolen from the guard.

No arrest or recovery has been made so far and a case of housebreaking and theft of property has been opened at the Okahandja Police Station in connection with the matter.

Police investigations continue.
