The Thaba Nchu police have made a breakthrough in the burglary at the Mokitlane Primary School after arresting five suspects and discovering stolen computers.

Sgt Martin Xuma, spokesperson of the Selosesha police cluster, said a reliable source tipped off the police about where the stolen learning equipment had been kept.

He said the Selosesha Crime Intelligence (CI) and Selosesha K-9 Unit caught the five suspected burglars off-guard in the early hours on 28 February.

“Upon searching the house at the given address, members recovered three monitors, one printer, one computer mouse, one keyboard, one internal hard drive and three computers valued at R15 000. A toy gun, suspected to have been used in criminal activities, was also confiscated,” said Xuma.

The suspected burglars appeared in the Thaba Nchu Magistrate’s Court on charges of the possession of stolen property.

Xuma said an intensive investigation was underway to determine if the five suspects were linked to the burglary.

It is also investigated whether the suspects are possibly involved in a burglary syndicate.
