Five suspected car thieves who have been terrorizing the Albertine Region have been arrested by the police flying squad.

Albertine region police spokesperson Julius Hakiza has declined to reveal the particulars of the suspects that have since been concealed for fear of jeopardizing investigations. 

The suspects, who are said to have been terrorizing car owners, were arrested during an operation conducted by the flying squad operatives from different parts of the region including Masindi, Kikuube, and Hoima city.

Hakiza says the flying squad operatives also recovered two vehicles UAX 409U Toyota Premio that was stolen from Nyangahya village in Masindi and UBB533X Toyota wish.
