Seven suspects arrested for burglaries in Limpopo schools.


Seven suspects were arrested on April 26 for allegedly breaking into school premises and other residential areas and stealing different items.

The suspects were arrested during an Intelligence driven joint operation that comprised of Crime Intelligence Unit, Cluster Task Team and detectives from Mankweng.

The Police received information about the suspects and conducted a sting operation around Sebayeng policing area which led to the initial arrest of two suspects.

They were found in possession of items suspected to have been stolen from one of the schools in the area.

The team gathered more information on the other possible suspects involved in these burglaries. Five more were then arrested at different locations and were allegedly found in possession of other suspected stolen properties.

“The suspects are aged between 24 and 64, and were allegedly linked to several burglaries in the province,” added Limpopo SAPS spokesman Col Moatshe Ngoepe.

Among the properties recovered included desktops, flat computer screens, keyboards, grinder, white KIC refrigerators, double beds and plasma TVs.

The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Limpopo Lt Gen Nneke Ledwaba has commended this team of members for their swift action and the community for assisting the police with information which resulted in the arrests.

The arrested suspects will still be profiled to establish if they are linked to other burglary cases across the province.

All the suspects appeared at the Mankweng Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, 28 April 2020. They faced charges of business burglaries and possession of presumed stolen properties. Police investigations are still continuing
