Thieves hit store in Walmer

The Herald (South Africa) - - NEWS -

A PORT El­iz­a­beth SPAR was bur­gled on Wed­nes­day night af­ter thieves made a hole in the shop’s roof.

Po­lice spokesman War­rant Of­fi­cer Al­win La­bans said an undis­closed sum of cash had been stolen from the First Av­enue shop in Walmer.

The in­ci­dent was re­ported by a man­ager who had locked up and ac­ti­vated the alarm at about 9pm.

“When he re­turned the next morn­ing at about 4am, he dis­cov­ered a hole in the roof, where it is be­lieved the sus­pect could have gained ac­cess to the store,” La­bans said.

“It is un­clear if the alarm went off be­cause when the man­ager opened up [yes­ter­day], it seemed to be de­ac­ti­vated.” – Her­ald Re­porter
