A Port Elizabeth woman and two teenage girls, aged 16 and 17 years old, are expected to appear in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court and the Nerina House Court, respectively, on Friday after they were busted by local police on charges of theft at a local shopping mall.
It is alleged that on Sunday, a 48-year-old complainant had gone to a retail store at Sunridge Park Village, in Sunridge Park, Port Elizabeth, and when he arrived back at his home he realised that his cell phone was not in his pocket.
“The complainant returned to the shopping centre and viewed the CCTV footage in the store. The footage showed that while he was avoiding other shoppers from bumping him, a young girl had removed the cell phone from his pocket,” described police spokesperson, Captain Sandra Janse Van Rensburg.
“Video footage showed the suspects getting into a Nissan Micra vehicle.”
The complainant opened a case of theft at SAPS Mount Road. The vehicle’s registration number was circulated and on Monday, at 11:50am, the vehicle was spotted at Riviersonderend.
“The vehicle was stopped and after searching it, police seized 14 cell phones including the complainant’s phone.
“A male and female (both 23 years old) and two juveniles, aged 16 – 17, were arrested on charges of possession of suspected stolen property,” said Captain Van Rensburg.
