Diamond ore heist at Anjin mine - report

31 january 2014

Reports from Zimbabwe say twelve suspected armed men who included members of the national army and civilians recently robbed Anjin Diamond Mine of 10kg of diamond ore.
The robbery took place on January 18 although the matter came to light Monday when four of the suspects appeared in court.
They were remanded in custody to February 5 after the state opposed bail.
NewsDay reports that one of the accomplices, Edmore Chingarande, died after he shot himself as police were closing in on them.
The state alleged that the suspects, dressed in army uniform and armed with AK-47 assault rifles, stormed plant number 5 where they used bolt cutters to cut the security fence and threatened to shoot the security guard on duty.
They later broke the cage where the diamond ore was stored and loaded about 10kg of the ore into bags.
