Two men in custody for house robberies in East London - more arrests expected

Two East London men, aged between 29 - 35 years, are expected in court soon after they were arrested by police in Mdantsane for a house robbery, which occurred in NU 6, Mdantsane on Wednesday night.

"This follows after a house robbery that took place in Wilsonia near Cambridge. Police recovered the stolen items with an estimated value of R30 000," local police said.

"The two suspects are due to appear in the East London Magistrate's Court on charges of house robbery soon.

"More arrests are imminent."

Mdantsane cluster commander, Major General Henry Vos, commended his team and further urged the members of the community not to buy stolen goods from a man on the street.

"This creates a market for stolen items and further increases house breakings and house robberies," police said.
