Mr KASALE was speaking in an exclusive interview with ZNBC news in Kitwe, after displaying the recovered items.
He has warned that police will not entertain barbaric attacks by criminals on the Copperbelt
In the past one week, armed robbers have been terrorising businesses in Solwezi, North-Western province, getting away with money.
