Bloemfontein - A thief who broke into a house and stole several possessions, including a car, then drove around in the same suburb, trying to sell it.

The thief wanted to sell the Golf 6 GTi for only R45 000 while the car was worth over R300 000, reported Volksblad.

Personal banker Craig Murison, 39, said he and his wife Esté, 34, came back from work on Monday evening to find that their home had been broken into.

“I suspect they must have been watching me and must’ve known my domestic doesn’t work Mondays. I am not worried so much about my car, but it is a big shock to know there was a stranger in my room.” 

Police officials as well as a private investigator were following up several leads.

Goods to the value of about R350 000 were stolen.
