A daring Bindura thief who stole clothes on a laundry wire was incarcerated by a Bindura magistrate yesterday.
Munyaradzi Gera (18) pleaded guilty to a theft charge before magistrate Ethel Chichera and was sentenced to an effective 5 months in jail.
The court heard that on December 28 a female cop Emilia Manyani (42) forgot her son’s clothes on a washing wire prompting Gera who came during the night to steal them.
On January 12 he was spotted by Manyani’s son clad in the stolen clothes whilst doing some part time jobs in the police camp.
The son advised her mother who quizzed him before filing a police report.
Geza was arrested and dragged to court.
