Police in Kabaale have confirmed an infiltration of Centenary Bank, Kabaale branch this afternoon by con men who were in pursuit of one of the bank’s clients with intent to exchange genuine currency for fake dollars with him.
“They were con men who wanted to con some business man of his genuine currency with fake dollars but their mission was foiled by the vigilance of the victim,” said a police detective.
However, an eye witness who was inside the bank premises at the time says there was connivance somewhere in the affair.
Amanyire Colleen wonders how the con men would have known about the customer’s money when he was coming out after transacting with the bank.
“How did the thieves discover that a certain individual had withdrawn a lot of money from the bank? Why did the security personnel shoot in the air when the vehicle was within the vicinity of the bank?” he asks.
