MASERU – Police are searching for three suspects who broke into the Lorreto Health Centre in Qoaling in the early hours of Monday morning and made away with two laptop commuters along with an undisclosed quantity of medication.

Police spokesperson Superintendent Mpiti Mopeli said the three gained entry into the compound by cutting the fence behind the building.

“They then jumped onto the roof before they later broke down one of the doors to gain entry into the building,” Mopeli said.

He said the suspects stole the laptops and medication from some of the offices before they fled the scene.

“The amount of stolen medication has not yet been established and police investigations are continuing,” he said.
