US$400 000 security vault heist latest: ZRP cop(31) caught with US$229 000

A police officer has been arrested after being found with US$229 000, 00 of stolen cash. The money is part of US$400 000 stolen by a Harare security company’s employees last weekend.
Police reported yesterday that a security company based in Waterfalls, Harare, lost cash amounting to US$400 000 in a suspected inside job involving rogue security guards. The stolen money was in a cash box which went missing from the company vault.
Two security guards have since been arrested and they are True Kanyenge (40), Phibion Munemo (44), who are all employed by the company while their other accomplice, Edward Kapuya has since disappeared.

Police have however also arrested Kapuya’s relatives Tirivangani Isdore Kapuya (31) who is a ZRP policeman and Honest Zhou Simare (44) after they were found with US$229 000 he had given to them for safe keeping.

The two were arrested in Kuwadzana resulting in the money, which was in US$10 and US$20 notes and stashed in a sack, being recovered. Sources close to the investigations said the suspects were on duty guarding the money which belonged to their clients since the company has a cash-in-transit service.

They are suspected to have hatched a plan to steal the cash box which was in the vault and took the cash. The offence was discovered the following morning and a report was made to the police. Police found the empty cash box on the verge of the company’s security fence near Mukuvisi River. They arrested the trio but failed to locate their other accomplice.

In a statement today, national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the incident and said investigations were still in progress.
