A suspected thief was found beaten to death in Sophia early Wednesday morning. The unidentified man was tied to a power pole in B Field, Sophia and beaten to death by angry residents.
One resident said the man was caught “red-handed” early Wednesday morning trying to break into a house along with two others. The other men were able to escape.
No one is claiming responsibility for the beating death but some residents in the community said thieves have been patrolling into homes for months and nothing was being done by the police to tackle the problem.
Police were called in this morning and have launched a probe. The thief was tied by his hands to the electricity pole and badly beaten according to eyewitnesses.
