Perpetrators enter shop through roof

2016-11-10 06:00

A GAMALAKHE supermarket was broken into in the early hours of Wednesday.

Gamalakhe SAPS, who were on duty, heard a suspicious sound and went to investigate.

“They approached the shop in the town and saw people fleeing from the premises,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

Upon investigation it was discovered that the perpetrators had gained entry through the roof of the building and then deactivated the alarm system.

It appears they had attempted to cut open two ATM safes inside the shop, with angle grinders, but abandoned the mission when they heard the police approaching. No arrests have been made as yet.
