Police are holding 13 people suspected to be part of a gang of robbers that have been terrorising residents of Kasese municipality and its outskirts. 

The suspects were picked up in a joint operation involving the army and police conducted on Sunday night after being found with house breaking tools and stolen items.

The suspects were picked up from Acholi Quarters, Base camp Lower, Katadoba and Shauri-yako in Kasese Municipality.     

Some of the suspects are Monica Nziabake Matafali Kabiira, Doreen Muhindo, Alex Muhindo, Rabson Thembo, Kasimu Ategeka and Moris Mumbere.

Three of the suspects including Alex Muhindo, Rabson Thembo and Kasimu Ategeka were found in possession of a bullet.

Also recovered were pictures of two people pausing with a gun. 

The operation was prompted by complaints from residents about the escalation of cases of burglary, pick pocketing, robberies and unknown settlers in the affected areas. 

Vincent Twesige, the Rwenzori East Region Spokesperson, says the suspects will be charged with theft and illegal possession of government stores when their investigations are complete.

Twesige says they intend to intensify their operations to eliminate wrong doers from the community. 

Isaiah Thembo, the Kitoro Cell Local Council I Chairperson, says he decided to call for the operation after registering several complaints of robberies in his area.
