Video: Arrogant thief steals principal’s laptop

The lone opportunist thief, with Laerskool C.R. Swart principal, Mr Pieter Fouché's laptop, clutched under his arm. The man entered the school yard without provoking suspicion, like any parent fetching their kids would do, on January 28. He calmly walks into the office building, past the reception desk, into the principal's office, and steals Mr Fouché's R15 000 laptop, then walks out.

In the past three weeks, crime has flared to the extent that the SAPS released a danger map of crime hot spots in town. Residents of Pongola Street have been identified as specific targets for armed robber gangs.

Housebreak-ins are also on the up, and last week a domestic worker was overpowered and bound in her employer’s Kanonkop home.
