THREE men, walking along Port Shepstone beachfront on Monday morning with suspected stolen goods, were arrested and charged after SAPS intervened.

Warrant Officer Johan Maree from Port Shepstone police received information from a community member and responded immediately.

Two flat-screen TVs, wrapped in a duvet, were found in the bushes at the beach.

“At the same time a complainant from a complex of flats in the area, reported that his flat had been broken into the previous night,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

The complainant reported that the door had been forced open and that two-flat screen TVs had been stolen.

“While police searched the area, they recovered two screw drivers and another blanket in the bushes,” said Wiid.

Sergeant Rudi Smit and Constable Sibusiso Cele from the 10111 call centre at Port Shepstone also recovered a radio, DVD player and a knife, which were also hidden in nearby bushes.

In a separate incident on the same day, two foreigners were arrested in the Shelly Beach area and certain items, suspected to have been stolen, were found in their car.

They will appear in court soon.
