This is from eblockwatch and we have been asked to alert people in the Garden Route to this couple who are dubbed “the show house robbers”. They are apparently operating in the Plett area at the moment (5 August 2013)
From http://www.lcw.org.za/ :
Notice to Estate Agents:
This couple together with a 3rd male person, are targeting show houses in the Northern Suburbs and stealing jewellery, perfume and small valuable items. Six weeks ago they stole jewellery to the value of R80,000 from a house in Brackenfell.
On Sunday (7 July) they targeted THREE show houses in the Durbanville area and the week before another one. They are driving a white Bantam Bakkie with an unusual old canopy. Obviously they give false names and false cell numbers. Please be on the lookout and contact SAPS Durbanville should you encounter them.
