Johannesburg - Three men were arrested after an IT shop in Grahamstown was burgled on Friday, Eastern Cape police said.

The men, two aged 35 and the other 25, allegedly stole several items, including monitors, projectors and a decoder from the shop, police spokesperson Mali Govender said.

A security officer arrived at the shop in the early hours of Friday morning after the alarm system went off.

He found one of the men in the shop, who claimed to be a cleaner, while the other two were carrying boxes out of the shop, Govender said.

The guard fired shots at the men when they attempted to flee the scene in one of two vehicles.

He called for assistance from his colleagues and the three men were arrested and the stolen items were recovered.

The men would appear in the Grahamstown Magistrate's Court soon.
