ASP Julius Hakiza Allan, the Albertine regional Police spokesman identified the suspect as Lillian Kyarimpa, 25, a resident of Rwengabi cell in Kabwoya sub county Kikuube district.
Kyarimpa stole property including clothes and shoes from maternity ward and Kangaroo ward in the broad daylight.
Hakiza said that she is suspected to be a habitual thief who always operates with others on the run who play the role of spying as she enters in the wards to steal.
