AN EPWORTH man Cardwell Kandembiri was Sunday arrested for stealing a doorframe at a house under construction in Magada Epworth.

Kandembiri appeared before Harare Magistrate Victoria Mashamba on Monday morning facing charges of theft to which he pleaded guilty.

His application for bail was denied after he failed to provide a given address.

The matter was remanded to January 3 2020.

It is the state’s case that the accused was seen at the Pentagon in Epworth on December 29 2019 carrying a doorframe at around 1 pm.

Kandembiri was apprehended by the police before being escorted to the house of the doorframe owner where the police found the owner absent on a holiday with his family.
