Police in Mutare are looking for a tenant who disappeared with his landlord’s vehicle – a Toyota Ipsum – last week. Norman Mateu is said to have washed the Toyota Ipsum (registration numbers ADK 9537) before he lied to the landlord’s children that he was taking it to their father’s workplace.

“We are appealing to members of the public with information leading to Mateu’s arrest to contact nearest police station. We will leave no stone unturned to arrest him,” said deputy Manicaland provincial police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Luxson Chananda.

He narrated how the landlord had gone to town and left his car at home.

The landlord’s daughter asked Mateu why he was washing the car but he lied.

She again queried why he was driving the car but Mateu said he had been instructed by her father to drive the car.

Sophie Clark From Parts Avatar Online A similar kind of incident had happened with my neighbors few months back. He used to take care of his car so much that he used to wash all its car parts everyday. But one sudden day, someone stole his car and he was extremely tensed. I gave him the suggestion to file an FIR so that there are some chances of thief might getting caught.
