Malawi Crime: K4.2m stolen from Mangochi NBS Bank, thieves on the run
Security seems to be going to the dogs again in Malawi with the latest incident involving the theft of K4.2million at NBS Bank Mangochi Branch last week by armed robbers.
Mangochi Police Station Public Relations Officer, Inspector Rodrick Maida told the Malawi News Agency (Mana) that the incident happened on August 18 when the thugs broke into the Banks premises.
“The cash was stacked into the ATM. The criminals stormed the Bank premises and tied security guards with ropes before proceeding into the Bank through the back door,” Maida said.
He said first counting of the stolen money indicated that close to K4.2 million had been looted.
According to Maida, the police have launched an investigation to bring the culprits to book.
Robbers have, of late, terrorized business as well as residential premises within and around Mangochi town.
