On July 18 last year at about 2am, Constable Mulaudzi received information about a business burglary in progress at Lifestyle Furniture Distributor Warehouse in Trojan, corner Marlborough and Spriengfield roads. When Mulaudzi and other members of the police arrived at the scene, they found a white Toyota bakkie with a canopy, registration MWX874GP. The vehicle was switched off and two black males were loading chairs into the Toyota bakkie. He also found that there was a metallic grey/silver refrigerator – still strapped in a plastic – inside the bakkie.

The members asked what were they doing at that time of the morning but the suspects could not answer. The police members informed the unknown males that they were arresting them for business robbery and theft. The value of the stolen items was R180 000.

On August 17, the two suspects were sentenced to ten years imprisonment and unfit to possess a fire-arm. The two suspects were charged for house break-in with the intent to steal. Constable Billy Letsoalo was investigating the case.
