The two-day grace period given to Greytown residents to return what they looted, yielded positive results over the weekend.

Police recovered goods worth over R100 000 during a joint operation between the South African Defence Force (SANDF), Greytown police, local security companies and municipal peace officers. Among the items that were dropped off during the grace period were fridges, furniture, clothes, alcohol and beds.

A police source told The Witness that the police had their hands full this weekend recovering the looted goods that had been dropped off at various points in Greytown.
