Thieves clean out uMhlanga home

Thieves make off with TV, a tumble dryer, shoes, selected clothing, laptop, toaster and a kettle and more.

A FATEFUL decision by an uMhlanga resident to drive up to Johannesburg has cost him thousands. The Meadow Way resident left on 11 July and police speculate that later that night thieves cleaned out his house, stealing every appliance and item they could carry.

According to Lt Raymond Deokaran, spokesman for the Durban North SAPS, the thieves may have spent hours ransacking the house undisturbed.

“The neighbour recalled seeing the gates open and every light in and outside the house on when he was going to the shops after watching the Sharks rugby game but didn’t see anything suspicious.

“The home owner who returned on Tuesday (15 July) realised what had happened and reported the case of burglary to the police. They obviously had a lot of time because they specifically stole more expensive items of clothing and left what they didn’t want behind.

“The thieves made off with a TV, a tumble dryer, shoes, selected clothing, laptop, toaster and a kettle. They even ripped a metal shelf which housed the microwave off the wall and took that with them. We believe the men entered through the front door by breaking down the door panel,” he said.

No arrested have yet been made.
