PRETORIA – Brandon Okkers (34) appeared at Bellville Magistrates court today in connection with the burglary at the Hawks offices in Bellville at the weekend. 

Three offices were broken into and an attempt was made to break open the door of another office.   Okkers was arrested on Tuesday and he was in possession of some personal items belonging to DPCI members.  The investigation is currently focussed into linking the suspect to other break-ins on the same building during the last two years. 

In all these break-ins a number of items ranging from flash-drive, hard-drive and private personal items of individual members were taken. The case has since been referred to the SAPS Detectives for further investigation.  The DPCI is also assisting with the investigation.

Meanwhile, Okkers remains in custody pending his next appearance at the same court on 23 April 2020. Source: South African Police Service
