Police arrest 2 suspects over showhouse robberies

Police believe they have caught the two people behind a string of showhouse burglaries that began in Brackenfell and Durbanville and spread along the Garden Route to Port Elizabeth.

The burglaries began late June/early July. The pair were arrested after a burglary at a Summerstrand house in Port Elizabeth yesterday.

Estate agents issued a warning among themselves about a couple who would pose as potential buyers. Once inside a showhouse one would distract the agent while the other swept through the house, searching for small valuables such as cellphones, jewellery and cash.

The couple are expected to appear in court on Monday.
