Man nabbed for Star Street house break-in

Police seized alleged stolen property during the arrest of a 19-year-old man.

While on patrol in Rietfontein Road, last Monday, officers from the Primrose police noticed a 19-year-old man carrying a number of items including a speaker.

“When he saw the police he became tense.

“He was stopped and the police asked him where he found the speaker but he couldn’t give a clear explanation,” said Sgt Styles Maome, communications officer for the Primrose police.

While officers were still speaking to the suspect, a man approached them claiming that the suspect had just robbed his Star Street home.

“The man told officers that he had seen the accused jumping the wall and when he checked in his house he realised that his speakers had been taken,” said Maome.
