The robbers struck twice - in Durban and in Umkomaas.

A gang of house robbers posing as police officers struck twice - in Durban and in Umkomaas - on Tuesday night, reported News24.

They robbed two homes with hours of each other dressed in police uniform and driving what seemed to be a marked police vehicle, the report said.

KwaZulu-Natal police are now investigating the incidents.

The report further said that well-placed police sources said that the first robbery took place in Bonela in Durban.

“It was reported that four men wearing full SAPS uniform and using a dark coloured double-cab bakkie which was fully marked in SAPS signage, had effected a house robbery,” he said.

“The victims were unable to identify whether the markings on the car could be linked to a specific police station but they were certain that it looked like a police car.”

In another incident, four men in police uniform stormed a house in Umkomaas, south of Durban.

“Again the gang of house robbers was dressed in uniform and brandished weapons. Along with a range of valuables, the suspects stole a car in the attack.

“We are now obviously investigating whether there is any possibility that the two cases could be linked because the modus operandi is so similar,” he said.
