Man cleans out Samaritan’s garage

2015-08-11 06:01

The police arrested three men in possession of stolen goods to the value of R15 000 in Hout Bay.

The arrest follows a car chase on Tuesday last week at about 05:00 as police officers on patrol noticed a suspicious blue Volkswagen Golf in Albert Road.

Warrant officer Tanay Lesch, spokesperson of Hout Bay police station, says a chase ensued and the car was pulled over in Hangberg.

“The three suspects and the car were searched and after questioning the suspects, the officers visited a home address provided by the suspects,” she says.

Lesch explains that the victim (at the address provided to the police) informed them that she had given one of the suspect’s a place to sleep and he cleaned out her garage during the night. A camping fridge, clothes, weed eater, tools and other items were stolen.

Lesch says a case of possession of suspected stolen goods and house breaking was opened. The three suspects have appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court
