The incident is said to have happened on Monday afternoon when the two, a male and a female went to the bureau to convert currency.


“The two suspects, according to the victim, entered the forex bureau under the pretext of changing some money but managed to steal some dollars from the counter of the bureau on the blind side of the attendant.

CCTV images of the suspects- whites- have been published by the police to aid in their arrest.

“Anyone with relevant information on the suspects should contact 0200416540 for further Police action”, the police statement said.


Meanwhile, the police service has urged operators of forex bureaus to be cautious in transacting their businesses.
