Six minors aged between 10 and 13 were caught drunk in a house they broke into in Kunene region’s Kamanjab area, after they raided the alcohol cabinet on Monday afternoon.
Police were called to the scene by the owner of the house who found them inebriated, and the youngest member of the group was photographed passed out in the police van.
In the photo the youngsters are surrounded by the leftovers of their drinking spree.
The owner of the house has refused to lay charges against the young boys.
The Kunene regional commander of investigation crime unit commissioner Rudolf Kanjedu confirmed the incident.
“Yes, I am aware of the incident. The owner of the house did not open a case with the police. He did not want to open a case and the boys had to be warned and let go. This is the fisrt time we have had such a case but it is true there were minors involved in the break in of a house where they consumed alcohol and caught red handed,” he said.
