The suspects are identified as Natamba Brian and Katushabe Saul have been stealing plates in areas of Lubowa, Zzana, Bunamwaya, Katale, Bukwenda, Seguku, and Nalumunye.

They pluck off car licence plates, leave their mobile phone contacts on the vandalized car, which the victims were expected to call for details about the whereabouts of their motor vehicle plates.

At least 46 different number plates were recovered.

“We would like to urge the general public, especially those who lost their licence plates to visit our police station to identify their licence plates.” Deputy PRO KMP Asp Luke Owoyesigyire said
