Zim gang of thieves in SA busted with 207 stolen cellphones. 3 Zimbabwean men have been apprehended by the South African police after being caught in possession of stolen cellphones and cell tower batteries. In a statement shared by the South Africa Police Services (SAPS), the suspects were headed to Zimbabwe when they were busted:

The Statement Read:

An intelligence-driven operation that was conducted on Monday, 20 January 2020 at about 15:30 by members attached to the Port of Entry, Westenburg Crime Intelligence unit and a Tracker company, led to the apprehension of three suspects aged between 28 and 35 for being in possession of suspected stolen property.

It is reported that police received information about a Toyota Quantum with a trailer carrying six occupants that was travelling from the Eastern Cape Province to Zimbabwe. The vehicle was spotted along the R101 road at Shell garage while refuelling and was taken to the nearby Weigh Bridge to be searched.

Upon arrival at the weighbridge, the vehicle was searched and police found two hundred and seven (207) brand new cellphones, five tower batteries, three solar panels and two laptops to the value of nine hundred thousand rand (R 900,000) that were concealed inside a trailer with luggage.

The occupants could not disclose the origin of the items and did not have the receipts. The driver, his assistant and one passenger who were pointed out were immediately arrested on the scene for being in possession of suspected stolen property.

Stolen Fone

During the arrest, police also confiscated the Toyota Quantum with Eastern Cape registration number and a trailer. The other three occupants were reportedly released because they were just passengers travelling home and could not be linked with the stolen items.

The suspects are expected to appear in Polokwane Magistrate’s Court soon. Police investigations are still continuing. Lately, South Africans have expressed their displeasure at sharing their country with foreigners and incidents like these reflect badly on honest Zimbabweans fleeing dire poverty back home.
