A 36-YEAR-OLD Gauteng man was burgled at the Kelso Caravan Park on Christmas day.

The man told police that because of the heat he and his family slept with a door open.

“Burglars allegedly entered the holiday house while the family was asleep and stole iPads, a Kindle, cameras, iPhones, bags and money,” said police spokesperson Captian Vincent Pandarum.

A case of theft was registered with the Scottburgh SAPS for investigation.

Constable Kishen Giani of the Umzinto K9 Unit received information about the suspects and teamed up with members of his unit and the Scottburgh Cluster Detective Task Team and raided a home in Malangeni on Monday 28 December, 2015.

Two suspects, aged 22 and 26, were arrested and two iPads, a Kindle, a Canon camera, a Nikon­ camera, a camera lens and a bag were recovered in their possession. Police then went to Umzinto where they interviewed­ a woman they believed bought the iPhone. They did not find the phone, but found the woman in possession of three straws of whoonga.

She was arrested for the unlawful possession of drugs.

One of the men arrested in the theft case has been connected, through forensic evidence, to a case of housebreaking that occurred in October 2007 in Pennington. - Supplied.
