Amulenda had in his possession, a microwave, kettle, clothes, three Netman devices, one DVD player and a home theatre system when the police caught up with him in Katutura on 7th of this month.
He was set to be put behind bars till his first court appearance but he managed to escape from the police. He is currently in police custody with no bail, although he can make a formal bail application now, if he so wishes.
His case will return to court on 11th February next year while further investigations are being done.
