A HOUSEBREAKING and robbery gang are still doing their rounds in plush Pietermaritzburg suburbs on the northern side of the city.

In the latest wave, they hit Clarendon and Northern Park.

In less than a week the gang has terrorised the community in upmarket suburbs by breaking into more than five houses. According to a source who did not want to be named, the gang use a white Toyota Corolla with only three hub caps.

It is alleged that the group broke into a house in Montgomery Drive and took a laptop and TV set on Tuesday. Later in Kitchener Road in Clarendon they robbed a security guard of his security radio. It is believed that the group are the same people who have been involved in attacks on two people in the area recently.

Police spokesperson Captain Laume van Jaarsveld confirmed the incident in Montgomery Drive.

No arrests have yet been made.

Townhill community policing forum chairperson Edmund Szudrawski said everyone in that area must be warned and be alert.
