The District Commanding Officer Senior Superintendent (Snr. Supt) Litsietsi Selimo on Monday said the Mants’onyane Police recovered a vehicle that was reported stolen at Ha Leqele, in Maseru earlier this year.
According to Snr. Supt. Selimo the car was recovered from a 22-year-old man from Macheseng, Mants’onyane who was driving the vehicle without a driver’s licence.
Snr. Supt. Selimo said the vehicle was stolen from the owner’s compound around 5am after the suspect realised the car keys had been left on the ignition.
The incident happened when the accused had gone to look for a job at the car owner’s place.
The police said it took time to find the vehicle since the suspect had kept a low profile.
The suspect was using the car as a cab, but still managed tokeep a low profile.
The 22-year-old will be transferred to Maseru where the crime occurred.
