A 25-year-old employee with Ballistics Arms and Security has appeared in court on allegations of stealing ammunition from his employer.

Brighton Kanyandu was facing theft and an alternative charge of contravening the Firearms Act when he appeared before Harare magistrate Mrs Judith Taruvinga.

He was remanded in custody to tomorrow for bail application. The court heard that during the period between March 2020 to March 2021 Kanyandu  was employed as a gun smith by Ballistics Arms and Security situated at suite 1 Catharine Court along Nelson Mandela Avenue in Harare.

It is alleged that same period Kanyandu stole various ammunition which include 300 x 22mm, 500x 7.65mm and 200 x 22mm rounds from his employer.

The court heard that his employer later discovered the offence and reported the matter at Harare Central police.

On July 30 detectives from CID Homicide received information from a source to the effect that Kanyandu was illegally dealing in ammunition.

It is alleged that a follow up was made leading to Kanyandu’s arrest at his house. A search was conducted leading to the recovery of the ammunition in question. Herald
