A second funeral home robbed

Three suspects entered under false pretenses of being customers.

Police are investigating a rather unusual series of crimes at a funeral home.

Three men allegedly robbed a funeral home last Wednesday – the second incident in January.

An employee who witnessed the robbery told police the men entered at around 1pm under false pretences of being customers.

While helping the one man, the other two allegedly went behind the counter. When the employee confronted them, the men became aggressive and instructed her to keep quiet.

They proceeded to take money and cellphones from the premises and fled on foot.

Warrant Officer Bongani Mpete is the investigating officer and can be contacted on 011 278 8100 with more information on the robbery.
