Namibia: Stolen Beds Recovered

THE Windhoek City Police recovered three stolen beds worth N$12 000 and arrested five suspects on Wednesday.

The goods stolen from Namib Foam in Windhoek were found in a house in KatuturaÂ’s Freedom Square.

City Police Superintendent Helena Mootseng told The Namibian that they raided the house after receiving a tip-off that the residents were dealing in stolen goods.

According to Mootseng, the people behind the theft are employees of Namib Foam .

The beds were delivered to fictitious customers’ addresses.

The company told the police that they had lost eight beds this past weekend and six beds the previous weekend. They have been experiencing this problem for the past five years and it got worse in the last two months.

Mootseng cautioned all employers to beef up their security systems this time of the year to curb theft by employees.
