Nine people arrested for Mzawandile Petros housebreaking
27 June 2011
Nine people have been arrested in connection with a burglary at the house of Gauteng police chief Mzawandile Petros’ house this weekend.
Police spokesperson Neville Malila says the suspects are aged between 21 and 39 and face charges of housebreaking, theft and possession of stolen property.
The suspects allegedly broke into Petros’ home on Friday night, while his wife was on the premises.
They reportedly fled when she activated the alarm.
Police maintain that the break in is in no way related to a burglary at the home of former police commissioner Jackie Selebi, which also happened this weekend.
