Police in Mwinilunga district of North-Western Province have arrested an employee of Airtel Zambia for allegedly stealing K37, 000 and airtime valued at K5, 924 from his workplace.
North-Western Province Commissioner of Police Joel Njase named the employee as Noah Katontoka, who is area Acting Manager.
Mr. Njase said the incident, which was reported by a security guard, is said to have occurred on May 18, 2021 between 24:00 hours and 02:00 hours at an Airtel shop located at new market.
He said Mr. Katontoka admitted having stolen the money after the police interviewed him.
He said the suspect later led the police to a nearby bush where two empty cash boxes were recovered and K1, 500 worth of airtime was also recovered from a pit latrine at a church in Kabanda compound.
Mr. Njase said the suspect decided to fake the theft after learning that he had a shortage and was scheduled for an audit.
He added that Mr. Katontoka deliberately left the door to the Airtel shop unlocked when knocking off and later came back in the night to steal.
