Two suspects aged 25 and 26-years-old are set to appear in the Cape Town’s Magistrate Court on Monday facing charges related to possession of stolen property and theft.

The suspects were arrested on Thursday in Woodstock after they broke into a car and stole valuables worth an estimated value of R35 000.

Sergeant Hilton Malila said the arrest follows after the police received information from the public about a known suspect that was in possession of a black computer bag at the stables situated in Browell street Woodstock. Police members reacted swiftly and searched one of the rooms situated at the stables, and during a search we recovered the black computer bag in the possession of the known suspect, as indicated by the community.

Malila said a preliminary investigation on the scene led the police to another room where an iPad were also recovered in the possession of a second suspect. The two men, who were found in possession of the items, could not account to ownership of the property and they were subsequently arrested for being in possession of presumable stolen property.

“During further investigation we manage to trace the owner of the property, who confirmed that his vehicle was broken into at the Salt River circle a couple of minutes ago and that he was in the process of reporting the incident. The items were identified at the police station and handed back to the lawful owner” Malila added.
