Eleven suspects have been arrested following a looting incident at a shopping mall in Evaton in the early hours this morning, police said.

Spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said:

More arrests could follow as police continue to search for the stolen goods in the area of Evaton. The looting followed an illegal service delivery protest by the community who had earlier barricaded the roads. The extent of damage and stolen goods have not yet been verified. It is believed that criminal elements took advantage of the situation and broke into several shops at the mall, gaining entry through the roof.”

Dlamini said the shops affected include Cash Build, Ackermans, Bradlows, PEP and a motorspares shop.
