Four suspects were arrested by the CID for stealing explosives from a quarry in Mawanella, the Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said.

He said the theft took place on December 22 from a quarry at Molligoda in Hingula in the Mawanella police area. 

The police complaint in this regard was recorded on December 23.

According to the statement, one suspect, who was an employee of the quarry, was arrested by the Mawanella police. 

Later, the investigations were handed over to the CID and they recovered the explosives from a location in Peradeniya with three other suspects who had links with the quarry employer.

The CID investigations revealed that the quarry employer had stolen the explosives and other materials and handed them over to the other three.

The quarry employee was remanded and the three suspects who were  arrested today will be produced before the Mawanella Magistrate, he said.

Police spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana further said the arrested suspects had no links with any terrorism activity for stealing these explosives. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
