The ZRP is appealing for information which may assist in the investigations of a case of armed robbery which occurred on 22/11/22 at around 1235 hours at a certain house along Heyman Road, Bulawayo.
Two unknown suspects, armed with an unidentified small firearm, approached the complainant, who is a registered gold buyer, claiming that they were selling 50 grams of gold before ransacking the house and stealing US$350 000 cash, a CCTV HDI server and a main gate remote.

Police urged members of the public who might have with information that can help in the investigation of the case to contact Bulawayo Operations at (0292) 885479 or the National Complaints Desk at (0242) 703631 or PGHQ WhatsApp at 0712 800197.

Cases of robbery in which individuals or companies lose huge sums of money have been on the rise countrywide.

Some blame the trend on the erosion of public trust in the banking sector which was caused by the loss of banked money.
