Police make arrest and find R3m worth of stolen TVs, laptops in Durban

Police have arrested a man after he was found in possession of laptops and TVs valued at R3 million, all believed to be stolen.

Durban Central police arrested the 36-year-old man in the Point area on Tuesday, said provincial police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Vincent Mdunge.

He said said the man was found in possession of 19 brand-new plasma TV sets, 60 laptops, 20 old plasma TV sets and 15 desktop computers.

All these were found at the man’s flat in the Point area.

“Police investigations revealed that some of these goods were stolen during housebreakings, house robberies, and thefts out of motor vehicles and harbour containers,” he said.

Mdunge said the goods were believed to be destined for other African countries.

The man will appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court on charges of possession of suspected stolen property.
