Robbery in progress? So what!

By Mooketsi Nthite
Police have again been accused of failing to assist members of the
public after burglars broke into a Silverton home early on Thursday morning.
Silverton resident Vincent Koorts woke up at about 2.30am after he heard
two intruders in his home.
He was unable to call the police as his cellphone was in the same room
as the intruders.
Koorts snuck out to his next door neighbours to call the Silverton
police station, which is within walking distance from his house.
"I called the police when the actual burglary was in progress."
By the time police arrived on the scene two hours later, the suspects
were long gone.
Vincent's wife Yvonne claimed that the police officers were careless in
collecting evidence.
"There were many fingerprints left behind but no one took them," she said.
Silverton police spokesperson Captain Jan Sepato said they would look
into the allegations.
