Backhoe missing from WASA compound
St Joseph Police are investigating the disappearance of a backhoe from the headquarters of the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) in St Joseph on Tuesday. Police said the backhoe, which is owned by a private contractor, was parked in a car park on the authority’s compound on Farm Road, St Joseph, around 12.30 on Tuesday morning. Officials from the authority contacted police yesterday morning after they realised that the equipment was missing. They also contacted its owner who denied moving it.
Detectives of the St Joseph CID visited the scene and viewed CCTV footage of the compound which showed the backhoe being driven out of the compound around 1 pm yesterday. Investigators could not identify the man who was driving the vehicle because of the poor quality of the footage. Police said an arrest is imminent. Contacted yetserday WASA’s corporate communication manager Daniel Plenty confirmed the report of the missing equipment and said the matter was under police investigation.
