Accidents, Robberies On Police Radar


Police in Maun are investigating two separate cases of robbery which occurred at a popular restaurant and Choppies store in Boseja. They have also confirmed an accident that occurred in Sedie recently.

Maun Police station Commander Superintendent Chenamo Orateng said two thieves recently stormed into Il Pomodoro restaurant at around 9pm thieves allegedly armed with metal rods and tree logs.  He said the culprits did not harm any of the employees but made away with a total amount of P700.

One of employees at the restaurant who chose to remain anonymous revealed that at the time of the incident they did not have security guards, as their services are only enlisted on Fridays and Saturdays.

As for the Choppies incident, Orateng indicated that investigations on the case are still ongoing to establish as to what could have transpired. According to him, the superstore was reportedly broken into Wednesday night at around 2000hours by robbers who were allegedly armed with metal rods. Orateng could not confirm the amount or goods stolen during the robbery.

The police boss has since urged members of the public to be on high alert of the robbers whom he indicated that are still at large.

Orateng further said they are investigating a horrific accident that occurred near Shell Filing Station at around 2100hours in Sedie. Orateng revealed that an Audi, with only the driver, collided with a Toyota Hilux which had two occupants.

Orateng explained that the Audi driver was overtaking when he collided head on with the Toyota Hilux.

He said the passenger in the Toyota Hilux and the Audi driver were treated at Letsholathebe Memorial Hospital for minor injuries and released.

Orateng said the driver of the other vehicle sustained serious injuries and suffered a broken arm and remains hospitalized at Letsholathebe Memorial Hospital.

Orateng said most accidents in Maun are caused by failure to observe road signs and drunken driving, and has since cautioned drivers against drinking and driving.
