They were committing these offences in Mucheke, Rujeko and Runyararo West suburbs.
In residential areas, the quartet would use iron bars to force open doors during the wee hours of the night and get away with different types of property.
Indications are that they may have started stealing a long time ago. In addition, they also pounced on motorists and raided them.
… We want to warn would-be criminals that the long arm of the law will always deal with them. We have deployed enough details to ensure there is peace throughout the festive season.
