Three Zimbabwean suspects between the ages 30 and 34 have been arrested for a business burglary at Lillian Ngoyi Street in Johannesburg on New Year’s day.
“Police were busy with their routine crime prevention duties when they were stopped by a security guard who informed them about a business burglary at Maroc Distribution situated at Rahima Moosa Street,” police said in a statement on Tuesday.
“Police saw suspects pushing a trolley and when they saw a police vehicle, they started to run away and they were apprehended.”
A trolley full of rice was recovered.
Police said the suspects had gained entrance to the premises by damaging the roller door. A crow bar, bolt cutter and hammer were recovered.
The suspects are expected to appear at the Johannesburg Magistrate’s court soon.
