## La Provence Road, Welgelegen 1, Cape Town, Western Cape
22 September 2017 at 17:50 - Reported by Anonymous
22/09/2017. At approximately 17h50, Shift Commander Groenewald was patrolling in La Provance Road, Welgelegen, when he was stopped by one of the residents and informed that there could possibly be a suspect in the house next door. It was also mentioned that the side gate was broken and 2 broken bicycles were laying next to the kitchen door. The resident in the flatlet at the back of the property noticed that her blanket was in the outside toilet. When she went to inspect it, she found that her TVs had been wrapped in the blanket. At that moment she realised that her flatlet had been broken into. Shift Commander Groenewald arrived at the premises and immediately requested back-up. Response Officers Cornelissen and Niemand arrived shortly after. They inspected the main premises and did not find any suspects. They did find an old phone, which they thought might belong to the suspect. They found that the suspects broke the window of the flatlet to gain access. Then, it was found that the sliding door of the main house was broken to gain access. A number of items were taken, including all door handles and taps. There were smaller items found outside of the house, including a knife and drug paraphernalia, which could belong to the suspects. SAPS were notified and arrived at the premises at approximately 19h35 to take over the scene.
