Supt. Ildephonse Rutagambwa, the District Police Commander of Bugesera, who handed over the motorcycles, thanked residents of Bugesera for their partnership and information sharing which led to the recovery of the motorcycles.

“Residents heard the suspects communicating with potential buyers across the border and called the Police, who swung into action immediately before they crossed,” said Supt. Rutagambwa

He appealed to the public to always be fast to report whenever they lose property for immediate police response to recover the items and arrest suspects.
