A 23-year-old man, identified as Sanpha Bundu, was arraigned before the police on Sunday, May 21, 2023, for allegedly breaking into a veterinary office along Gbaima Road in Bo.

Bundu was apprehended by a vigilant police officer who discovered him in possession of tools used to break into the office, including a hacksaw blade and an iron bar. Additionally, two damaged padlocks were seized as evidence against him.

During the break-in, Bundu reportedly stole several items, including three cartons of diluent, a rubber bucket, three boxes of gloves, eight aprons, three boxes of veterinary drugs (Tylosine and Lufenuron), two small Coolman containers, a white towel, a white Cool chain, and a leaf zinc.

The timely intervention of the police officer prevented Bundu from fleeing the scene with the stolen items. Upon his arrest, the suspect confessed to the allegations and pleaded for mercy, revealing that he is financially dependent on a woman and has a two-year-old child.
