NELSPRUIT – Police are hunting for three suspects who broke into a house at Matekula Farm in Waterval Boven and stole 16 firearms on May 10.

According to the police, It was revealed that the suspects allegedly forcefully got into the house through a window. They held the owner at gunpoint before tying him against a chair. The suspects then went into the victim’s workshop where they took a crowbar and proceeded to smash a glass door of the victim’s brother’s house next door.

“The intruders ransacked the house, found two safes which they broke open and stole 16 firearms, 11 hunting rifles, four shotguns and one pistol, as well as ammunition. They then loaded all the firearms including a TV and a computer in a vehicle belonging to the victim,” said the police.

They urge any person with information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects to contact Detective Warrant Officer Raymond Mammaila at 072 023 1542 or call the SAPS Crime Stop number 08600 10111.
