Residents wake up to a shock

According to the spokesperson of the police in Carletonville, WO Peter Masooa, the first incident took place during the night of 6 September at a house in Reinecke Street. Before the resident went to bed at around 21:30, he ensured that all the doors were locked and the windows closed. When he woke up around 02:30 the next morning to go to the toilet, however, he realised that some items were missing from his lounge. He checked further and found that the dining room window had been forced open and the burglar bars had been removed. The burglar fled with a Hi-Sense plasma television set, an Acer laptop and a Diesel wristwatch.
In another incident, a house in Katberg Street was broken into, in similar circumstances on 8 September.
Here, the complainant went to sleep at around 01:00 after he had also made sure that the windows were closed and the doors were locked. When he woke up at around 06:30, he realised that his LG television set was not on its stand.
It was later determined that the burglar had also gained entry through a window in the dining room.
