Ixopo cops hold 13 for spate of break-ins

2011-08-09 00:00

IXOPO police arrested 13 suspects at the weekend in connection with housebreaking cases in the area.

The suspects appeared at the area magistrate’s court yesterday.

Provincial police spokesperson Captain Thulani Zwane said the break-ins had been reported since June, but with no breakthrough in terms of arrests.

He added that when the suspects were arrested they had already sold some of the loot.

He said the police had taken the suspects around to houses where they had sold some of the stolen goods.

“It is illegal to buy stolen goods,” said Zwane.

“Normally those who buy these from criminals are also charged for dealing with stolen goods.

“Unfortunately I don’t have all the details of this particular case,” said Zwane.

He said that among the recovered goods are television sets, angle grinders, microwave ovens and a number of other electric appliances.

The recovered goods are estimated to be worth R40 000.

Zwane said the suspects were remanded in custody until Monday next week for a bail application hearing.
