“At that stage, a neighbour called for the complainant and upon hearing this, the suspects fled, taking the safe with them. It is not certain if the suspects fled on foot or were in a vehicle,” said Cpt Naidoo.
They stole items to the total value of R20, 000, a CZ83 firearm and one magazine with 10 X 9mm rounds.
