TWO suspects, aged between 18 and 21 years, were arrested after Port Shepstone SAPS, the K9 unit and security officers from a local security company responded to a report of a burglary in progress at a home in Umtentweni on Wednesday.

Police spokesperson Captain Vincent Pandarum said the arrest happened at about 8 am and police recovered property believed to have been taken during recent burglaries.

Stolen household items, including a flat-screen TV, clothing, vehicle accessories, luggage bags, sound equipment and housebreaking implements were found. The stolen goods were positively linked with a housebreaking in the area.

The two suspects remain in custody and will appear in the Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court soon. The cases are being investigated by Detective Sergeant Morne Jones of the Port Shepstone SAPS Detective Service.

Ugu Cluster Commander Major General Sethenya Nxamagele commended the police members for their sterling work in arresting the suspects and recovering the property: “The prompt response by the police and security officers ensured that the suspects did not get away with their booty. I am pleased with their excellent efforts”, said Nxamagele.
