15 laptops stolen from Ohangwena school

Police in Ohangwena have urged inhabitants to be more cautious, following an increased number of housebreaking cases in the region.

About 132 cases have been reported since January.

Sergeant Andrew Nghiyolwa appealed to the public not to leave their houses unattended. 

The spike in crime in the region coincided with the school holiday.

He also appealed to teachers, who are on holiday, to establish a neighbourhood watch to avoid the loss of valuable property.

He made the announcement while requesting assistance from members of the public to recover 15 laptops and a monitor that was stolen from the Eenhana Senior Secondary School on Saturday night.

Nghiyolwa said the break-in occurred at night.

The police are advising the public to be mindful of electronics currently being sold – whether on the street – or through social media.

“Electronics stolen from Eenhana Senior Secondary School are all black laptops. All serial numbers for the devices have been provided to the police and will be easily identified if queried,” he added.

He said the suspects forced their way into the school on Saturday night and made off with the computers along with all required charging cables.

It is not clear if the school premises were left unguarded.

An investigation is ongoing; anyone with information is asked to contact the nearest police station. -
