Police in Kabale last night arrested 49 people in an operation to reduce crime ahead of the festive season.

According to the Kigezi regional police spokesperson, Elly Maate, the suspects who are all men in their 20s were picked from video halls in the municipality.

Maate said most criminals hide in such places during day time and attack innocent people during the night to steal property from them.

He added that the Police will screen them and those with clear identification tools and a clean record shall be set free.

Maate urged the general public to be cautious of criminals as they prepare to celebrate Christmas and New Year festivities.

"We want our people to celebrate Christmas without any interference. That is why we are carrying out these operations. We shall screen them and have the bad characters charged," said Maate.
