NUMEROUS stolen items were recovered by Hawks officers after they received information that a former Port Shepstone policeman and his wife were allegedly involved in a spate of business robberies.

iPads, hard drives, two smart phones, two laptops, one PVR recorder, one Tablet, tools, one television and two small-coded safes were found on the property.

Officers also found balaclavas and gloves which they suspect was used while committing their crimes.

Darron Jansen (44) was charged with business burglary and his wife, Jacqualine Jansen (32), was charged with possession of property suspected to be stolen and both appeared in the Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court last Thursday.

They were granted bail of R5 000 and will reappear in court on 15 June.

Four more people, suspected to also be involved in the robberies, were arrested on Sunday while travelling from East London.

Officers from Hawks and Kokstad­ joined forces with the RTI and K9 Unit and intercepted the vehicle­ at Brooks Nek near Kokstad.

Power tools and grinders were recovered after searching the vehicle.

The four, aged between 30 and 40, appeared in Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

A remand date and names of suspects could not be established at the time of going to press.
