Police has trashed reports of the alleged arrest of self-styled tycoon Bryan White as untrue and baseless.
“We have not arrested him,” Police spokesperson Emillian Kayima exclusively told The Tower Post on phone.
Social media wash awash with claims that Bryan White had been arrested for accumulating debts and being in possession of a stolen car at his Munyonyo home.
This website earlier reported that Police had surrounded the tycoon’s house due to an unpaid debt worth USD160,000 which he owes to a city businessman.

The said city Businessman sold a car type Mercedes Benz G63 registration number UBA 063J at a tune of USD260,000.
Bryan White reportedly paid a first instalment of USD 100,000 remaining with a balance of 160,000 which he had promised to pay in a period of one week in mid-May.
But according to reports, Bryan White started dodging the businessman and refusing to pick his calls which led to filing of a case against the socialite.
According to Kayima, Bryan White is facing a criminal charge of obtaining goods by false pretense.
“We have just impounded his vehicle he obtained falsely and there is also an arrest warrant on him,” Kayima said.
“We shall be expecting him to report to us for a statement.”
