The first prosecution witness in the trial of one Sankung Sabally has told the Brikama Magistrates' Court that he personally intercepted Sankung whilst he was transporting stolen blocks on a horse cart.

Sankung is, at present, being tried for allegedly stealing D6,665 worth of cement blocks.

Lamin Bojang, the first prosecution witness in Sankung's case, said he had sometime moulded 10,000 cement blocks in his Brikama Jamisa residence.

" One day, I saw Sankung transporting blocks to Brikama Wellingara. Upon encountering him, I arrested him and handed him over to the police in Brikama. At the station, he confessed to keeping some of the blocks in Wellingara," added the witness.

The case continues.
