Theft robbery

Two Cable Thieves Arrested for Vandalizing Electricity Facility in Roodepoort.

Crime is on the rise in the city of Roodepoort, especially the stealing of government properties including electricity cables. Most of this criminal act is perpetrated by foreigners who live in the area.

Just yesterday, about two Zimbabwean brothers were caught red handed stealing after they sever the locks of an electricity substation situated in Roodepoort to gain access into the facility.

They cut a whole lot of cables transporting power into the cities.

They were later seen with steel-cutting equipment and other tools including saws.

Three already cut padlocks were also found in their possession.

The two suspects were handed over to the police where a case of vandalism and theft of essential infrastructure has been opened.

According to a statement issued by 'Car Tracker SA' on Twitter and it reads:

"2 cable thieves arrested for vandalism and theft of electricity infrastructure in Roodepoort. 

The two were arrested last night after they cut the locks to gain access in to the substation in Florida.

Inside the substation they cut and stole some cables leading to power going off."
