A very observant and witty house robbery victim alerted SAPS Kabega Park detectives immediately after recognising her two laptops being advertised for sale on an internet site.

On Tuesday, 24 August 2021 at about 10:00, the victim and police visited a computer shop in Cape Road where she positively identified her laptops. A total of 22 laptops were confiscated by police. One laptop was also positively identified through its serial number of being stolen in a house robbery in Sandton. The 40-year-old male was arrested and detained on a charge of possession of suspected stolen property.

Daniel Daudo appeared in the Gqeberha magistrate court on Wednesday, 25 August 2021 and was released on R1000-00 bail. The case is remanded to 29 September 2021.

Police are appealing to anyone who was a victim of a house robbery or housebreaking where laptops were taken, to contact SAPS Kabega Park detectives, D/W/O Heinrich Minnie on 074 453 2738 or D/Sgt Aldre Koen on 072 288 6253 or SAPS Kabega Park on 041 397 6802.
